Promoted to Captain in 2011, John Whiteman has assumed the responsibility of the Operations Captain on the 4-12 Shift and has implemented several improvements to the record keeping and organization of the office. Captain Whiteman is deliberate, accurate and an excellent leader during the evening shift.

In the summer of 2011, Captain Whiteman was appointed as the Tactical Commander for MCTC. Captain Whiteman’s experience as a 20-year veteran of the US Army and having served two tours in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba prepared him for his assignment.
