Officer John Zubrinic started with the Arvada Police Department in January 1996. He has been a patrol officer, field training officer, and a member of the Community Resource Impact Team, the department’s special enforcement unit. He also served a previous stint as the SRO at Oberon Middle School and Ralston Valley High School. Officer Zubrinic is currently a firearms instructor for the department and teaches in the Criminal Justice Program at Red Rocks Community College.
Prior to becoming a police officer, Officer Zubrinic taught high school for a year in Arizona, so he enjoys getting in the classroom and interacting with students. He currently provides instruction on a variety of topics in the classroom at A-West and Warren Tech North.
Officer Zubrinic has a son in college, so he feels it is important to set an example for students and be a positive influence. He would like students to realize that police officers are at the school to be a resource for the students and to maintain a safe learning environment for students and staff. Officer Zubrinic would like to see each student graduate and be successful in their lives and productive members of society.
