Mark G. Hobbs began his 20-year law enforcement career in 1981 at the University of Alabama in Birmingham Police Department. In 1984, he began serving with the Hoover Police Department, spending the majority of his tenure in the detective division. In 1989–2000, Hobbs served as Hoover Police Department’s Detective Sergeant, achieving a 99.5% conviction rate of all arrests–a case solvability rate four times that of the national average. Hobbs served with distinction receiving numerous commendations and endorsements, including U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, U.S. Senator, Chairman-Select Intelligence Committee, Richard Shelby, U.S. Congressman Spencer Bachus, and the FBI.
In 2000, Hobbs’ medical doctors diagnosed him with having multiple sclerosis. After this diagnosis, Hobbs retired from law enforcement. Hobbs then owned and operated a corporate security firm, National Intelligence Service, utilizing former local and federal law enforcement agents to provide corporations with a litany of investigative services from simple background to complex embezzlement and counter-technical surveillance investigations.
In 2013, after a multitude of serious illnesses related to multiple sclerosis, Hobbs had to retire his business. Hobbs then focused his efforts on completing his novel, Bold Lions Survival Sense, that he began writing 2007.
