Julius Tauberg Police Officer

Behind The Badge: Julius Tauberg Police Officer (Reserve)

Prior to joining the Utility team, Julius began his law enforcement career with the Israel Defense Forces in 1999 then later joined the Marion County Sheriff’s Office as a deputy in 2012.

Julius joined the Utility, Inc. team starting as a Law Enforcement Trainor in 2021. In his current role as Regional Training Supervisor, he applies his wealth of knowledge in the public safety sector and his experience utilizing our life-saving technology to help serve the agencies he once worked alongside.

Julius sat with Utility’s Blog Editor to answer a few questions about his story:

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself Julius.

A:  Where to start?

I was born in Romania, and my family moved to Israel in the late 80s due to communism growing in Romania.

Growing up in Israel, American movies influenced me. I loved coming to America with Eddie Murphy, Westerns with Clint Eastwood & others.

After I finished my military service, I decided to come to America and explore. I had different “jobs and careers,” but I always wanted to be a Police Office to help others.

It was not easy because I needed to be a citizen first, & the language barrier was not easy. Fast forward around six years, I got my citizenship and applied to many departments, and
finely, I got into MCSO as a Deputy.

I am married, and we have two amazing girls. I now work for a fantastic company, and I can say I make an impact on other Leos around the US and the world.

Q: What inspired you to choose the path of working in
Law Enforcement?

A: Simple. I want to help the ones who can’t [help themselves].

Q: What were some highlights from working in Law Enforcement?

A: I can’t think of something specific. Being a Police officer is something “you are,” and every day has
different highlights and learning curves.

Q: What has been your biggest “lesson learned” that you’d like to share with other Law Enforcement leaders?

A:  I think as an LEO, you must be willing to learn and be open to new ideas.

In Law Enforcement they say, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” but maybe we can find an improved way to do something, we don’t need to fix, but grow.

Q: What does Transparency mean to you?

A: Do your best, and there’s only one truth. Agencies must be able to have conversations with the
citizens one on one.

Q: How have you seen Technology aid in Law Enforcement?

A: [They provide] A VOICE.

BWC (Body Worn Cameras) show the officer’s side, and he has a voice in the conversation.

These days a “cop” word doesn’t go so far, so we must ensure we have his back with a solid BWC and not a cheap product.

Q:  What advice would you give to an agency that is going through the process of selecting a Digital Evidence Management System (DEMS)?

A: Ensure your officers know why they need them and how this can benefit their daily work.

At the end of the day, the officer is responsible for his safety and career. Many products are out in the market, so
we must make sure they select one they can trust.

Never ask an officer to do what Technology can do for them!
