Derrick has also worked as an undercover Detective in the Special Investigations Unit, posing as a college student, a drug user, and a drug dealer, just to name a few.
At the age of twenty-three, Derrick was involved in a critical incident where he fatally shot a man who was attempting to stab him with a knife. He received the "Medal of Valor" for his actions, the highest honor an officer can receive.
