He has served as confidential aid to a Police Director. Mr. Parreott has been the project manager for two accreditation programs for a law enforcement agency.

Earning a degree in legal studies; from Kaplan University in 2011; Derrick’s greatest interest is in criminal defense work [law]; as he states his law enforcement career has taught him the prosecutorial side of the "Injustice System"; and he now looks forward to tipping the scales of justice in favor of the defendant.

Mr. Parreott takes his stance stalwartly, asserting that many prosecutors do not adhere to the language in State v. Kenny, 128 N.J. Super. 94, 109 (App.Div. 1974), which states: While the prosecutor is permitted a vigorous presentation, his primary obligation is to seek a fair trial. State v. Farrell, 61 N.J. 99, 104 (1972); State v. West, 29 N.J. 327, 338 (1959); State v. Sullivan, 24 N.J. 18, 36 (1957); [*111] State v. Hipplewith, supra. His zeal must be contained within the boundaries of fair play, propriety and the four corners of the indictment. Dunn v. United States, 307 F. 2d 883 (5 Cir. 1952).
