Wayne Hubbard  I was born and raised in Cincinnati. After high school, I joined the Army reserves as an MP and went to the University of Cincinnati. I worked in the engineering department of the Cincinnati Water Works, before I decided to move to Maryland and become a Police Officer for the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC. Where, after a few years, I was promoted to Sergeant. Then, due to a family situation, I moved back to Cincinnati and took a position as an officer for the Springdale Police Department.

While with Springdale, I became an OPOTA certified Handgun Instructor. I have also completed numerous advanced firearm courses through TDI. I was on the Drug Task Force forced entry team (warrant service). I am also a certified Glock Armorer.

I met Fred when I started at Springdale and we became good friends. I have been helping as an instructor for at least 7 years now.
