Officer VuongVu Le
I am from Port Arthur, Texas, born and raised…on the playground is where I spend most of my days. I enlisted in the U.S. Army right out of high school and served from 2000-2010. I was deployed during Operation Iraqi Freedom (Ramadi). I was an overseas contractor in Bosnia. I worked 4 years with the Colorado Department of Corrections.
I have been with CSPD since 2016 and have worked in Stetson Hills and Falcon. I have been with the SRO Unit since 2019 at Holmes and West Middle Schools, and am currently assigned to Discovery Canyon Campus. I enjoy basketball and spending time with my family.

Officer David Kester
I am Ofc. David Kester and I’ve been with the Colorado Springs Police Department since January of 2007. I am currently assigned as the Liberty High School, School Resource Officer. I’ve been with the SRO unit since 2019, prior to that I have spent my time with the department in patrol. I have spent time in the Sand Creek division as well as the Stetson Hills division working as a patrol officer. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, where my father worked for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for 20 years and my mother was a dispatcher there for 30 years, so I guess you could say being a police officer is in my blood. When my father retired from Metro in 1991, I moved to Utah where I graduated high school. After high school I decided to pursue my dream to play baseball and was able to play all through college and in 2001 had the opportunity to participate in Junior-College World Series. After college I was fortunate enough to play two years of Semi Pro baseball in Killarney, Manitoba, Canada.
After my baseball career came to an end, I packed my stuff up and moved to Colorado where, I had always wanted to live. Once I arrived in the Colorado Springs community I fell in love with the city and decided this was the place I wanted to raise a family. I hired on with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in 2004 as a security technician working in CJC before leaving the Sheriff’s Office as a detention specialist in 2006. I was offered the opportunity to work for the Colorado Springs Police Department in January of 2007 and have enjoyed my time with the department ever since. I am also an assistant baseball coach with the Falcon High School baseball team and thoroughly enjoy working with high school-age students. This is the main reason why I decided to join the school resource officer unit, to help pass on some of my knowledge and help kids understand that the decisions they make now could impact their future.

Officer David Isue
I have been an officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department since 2012. My first assignment was as a patrol officer assigned to the Stetson Hills division. After gaining three years of patrol experience and serving as a police training officer. In 2016 I was selected as the school resource officer for Rampart high school and Mountain Ridge middle school.
I was inspired by DARE officers as a young student which influenced my decision to be a school resource officer. When I enrolled at Kent State University in the fall of 1991, my focus was on a career in law enforcement. However, while a student, I researched Air Force ROTC and ultimately served as an active-duty Air Force officer upon graduation.
In my free time, I enjoy short road trips with my wife and son, hiking, shooting, gaming, and watching college football and Netflix original series.

Prior to working for the Colorado Springs Police Department, I was in the United States Air Force Reserves as Security Forces (Military Police) and spent time working with Special Operations. I also worked in nursing for several years and have experience in several different fields of nursing to include working with children with different types of disabilities.
I became a School Recourse Officer because I love working with children and helping them grow. I look forward to making positive connections with the youth of the community through the schools and helping them make positive decisions that lead to their success. In my off time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, exploring, learning new things, reading, spending time with family and yoga. I also enjoy soccer, dancing and cheerleading.
