Officer Jeff McGrath (retired)
Officer Jeff McGrath is a decorated Police Officer who retired in June 2017. Jeff began as a Solo Patrol Officer after graduating from the Arizona Law Enforcement Academy. After his first year, Jeff was also selected to become a School Resource Detective. Jeff was later certified as a DARE and GREAT (Gang Resistance Education and Training) Officer in Los Angeles by the L.A.P.D.
In 2004, Jeff was recruited to become a member of the first Motorcycle Unit/Traffic Enforcement Bureau and DUI Squad with the Avondale Police Department. His eight years as an officer also gave him the opportunity to become an expert on Arizona Title 28 violations and answering calls for service as a first responder. Then in 2006, Jeff became a Motor Instructor which involved providing training for new motor officers on how to master the skills of police motorcycle riding, where he later became the Senior Motor Officer in the unit.
As a member of the Traffic Unit, Jeff was given the significant responsibility of training new officers (Post Academy) in Traffic Stops, Radar/Laser certification and operation, SFST’s, and DUI investigations. In addition, Jeff was also assigned to the Vehicular Crimes Unit. Jeff realized his passion for Accident Reconstruction and became the Lead Investigator of the Vehicular Crimes team; and conducted hundreds of Accident Reconstructions over a period of eight years.
Jeff’s police career was unfortunately cut short due to an on-duty motorcycle accident which put him on medical leave and eventually forced his retirement. In late 2016, Jeff launched 3LawsRecon, LLC. From 3LawsRecon’s inception, Jeff has worked numerous cases for multiple Defense Attorneys in the state of Arizona. Jeff’s record of forcing desirable pleas and case dismissals is the highest in the valley.
