Officer Mullen came to the Juno Beach Police Department after serving as a Deputy Sheriff with the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office. His responsibilities there were mostly in road patrol and responding to calls for service in some of the smaller towns and villages west of the City of Okeechobee.
Greg joined the Sheriff’s Office after earning his Bachelor of Arts degree at Florida Atlantic University’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice. His curriculum there focused on the nature and causes of crime and delinquency, law and the legal system for juveniles and adults in society, and the decision processes of criminal justice agencies.
Officer Mullen chose law enforcement for his career early in life because of his strong desire to interact with the public, assist members of society, provide awareness and education and, when necessary, enforcement.
Coming to Juno Beach, Greg feels he will have more opportunities to work on community outreach programs and assist in various programs and law enforcement projects within the Town.
Officer Mullen looks forward to increasing his resident interaction and community policing. He speaks highly of the Juno Beach Police Department’s Command Staff and all the fellow officers he works with. He frequently mentions how the local Command Staff cares about their Officers, listens to and reacts to their suggestions and ideas.
Coming from an agency that had no Police Foundation, Officer Mullen is particularly pleased with how the local community provides financial assistance to the Juno Beach Police Foundation which in turn ensures that he and his fellow Officers have the equipment, training and new technology they need to ensure the safety of the community.
Officer Mullen was born and raised in Palm Beach County and currently lives in Palm Beach Gardens. A bachelor, Greg enjoys cooking, freshwater Bass fishing and honing his marksmanship skills at the pistol range. He is particularly proud of having rescued a dog which was hit by a tractor-trailer late at night on State Road 70. He took the dog to a local 24-hour veterinary clinic where he was treated, recovered well, and adopted out to a good home.
