        wenty-nine years ago, my wife Darlene and I, each 22
        years old, decided to move to Southern California from
        Brooklyn, New York. We did so in order to help my elderly
grandparents who were getting up in age and who were working as
managers of a motel in Ontario. I had long wanted to be a police
officer and at that time, the City of New York was laying off police
officers, thus it was my belief that the only way I could become
a police officer was to do so in Southern California. I recall
arriving in October of 1979 to the Ontario area and immediately
fell in love with the Valley with its majestic mountains, bedroom        Presiding Judge Jim McGuire with Judge Larry Allen
communities, and close proximity to the beach and to Los Angeles,
the entertainment capital of the world. I immediately filled out
applications to become a police officer for several local agencies.
I was extremely fortunate in December of 1979 when I was hired
by the City of Ontario as a police officer. I will never forget the
excitement and sheer joy I felt when I was told that I was going to
be a member of the Ontario Police Department. I recall the starting
salary for a new police officer was $1,068.00 per month. I looked
forward to January 5, 1980, the day I was to start my training at the
San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Academy in Devore.
   It was during my academy training when I was first given the
opportunity to learn about the law. During my academy training,
along with the other recruits from the 61st class of the San
Bernardino County Sheriff’s Academy, I was exposed to training
in defensive tactics, firearms, use of force, laws on search and
seizure, and the Vehicle and Penal Code. It was during this early             Jim Heiting and Judge Peter Norell (Ret.)
exposure to the law that I realized how the law separated the civil
from the un-civil and protected society from those intent on doing
wrong. I was extremely proud to serve as a police officer for the
City of Ontario, often being described as an extremely proactive,
aggressive police officer.
   It was also during my early years at Ontario Police Department
that I was exposed to the criminal justice system. This was back
in a time before the consolidated court, back in the day when
preliminary hearings would not take a mere fifteen to thirty
minutes. It was a day when prosecutors and defense attorneys
litigated cases against each other in the morning, but also enjoyed
time together away from the courthouse. It was a time that many

and would like to see the State Bar do more to
encourage it, possibly through MCLE credit.

is in nursing school and her son is in training
to become a commercial airline pilot. Keough
remains on good terms with her ex-husband, a
longtime employee of Loma Linda University
