My name is Jim Bucks. I serve Blue Line Unlimited in the position of Secretary.
I started in law enforcement as an auxiliary officer for the City of Bedford in 1985. Then hired as a full-time officer by the City of Warrensville Hts. in 1986, serving there until 1997, when hired by the City of Shaker Hts. Here, I had the honor of serving with Ralph Spidalieri and Dan Clementi. The three also worked together with the SWAT team (1*). I was forced to retire in Sept. 2001 as I began my 16th year, due to health reasons. With this personal experience I know the devastation of a career ending incident. That’s what Blue Line Unlimited is about and my commitment to help others.
I am married, with three grown boys.
