President General Warren M. Alter (2018-2019)

President General Warren M. Alter (2018-2019) (Arizona SAR)

Compatriot Alter was born in Aurora, Colorado, and moved to Tucson, Arizona, as a young child and has lived there for over 50 years.

His formal education includes Bachelor of Science degree in public administration, Master of Arts in organizational management, Master of Education in educational leadership, Certified Public Manager and Graduate of FBI National Academy. Compatriot Alter joined the Pima County Sheriff’s Department at the age of 20 as a detention officer, and worked his way up through the ranks to retire as Bureau Chief with 39 years of service. He also retired after 14 years as adjunct faculty member at Pima Community College and University of Arizona teaching variety of law enforcement-related undergraduate and graduate level courses.

He and his wife Nancy have two daughters Katie and Amanda and two grandsons, Brayden and Ethan.

Compatriot Alter joined the SAR in 1998 due to his long term interest in genealogy. The SAR drew his attention because of the Law Enforcement Commendation program. The local chapter contacted his department for a nominee and he knew immediately that any organization that supported public safety and patriotic service was one he wanted to join. It wasn't long after joining that he became involved with the National SAR through the various committees and projects.
