Bill Mikaluk (B.Ed., PCC, CPP)

Bill Mikaluk

Bill Mikaluk is a retired policeman. He enjoyed over 25 years with the Edmonton Police Service before retiring in 2019. He is now working part-time as a community peace officer and as a corporate chaplain. He also volunteers at his church, creating men’s programs such as Men’s Adventure Group and ‘Power Up!’, which is a personal development program.

Bill began his career as a school teacher and then transitioned into policing, which drew him into instructing and performance management in the Edmonton Police Service. He also worked as a coordinator within the Police Training Officer program for a number of years.

When a friend encouraged Bill to get involved in coaching and certification, Bill realized how transformational this would be for himself and his colleagues. That was in 2010, and was the beginning of his journey into ‘coaching in policing’, and supporting police leaders. Bill started “CopsCoach International” shortly after.

In 2011, Bill became a certified professional coach and a certified police coach, and has presented coaching materials at various conferences. In 2018/2019 he completed the Positive Psychology and Positive Education certification programs through Wilfrid Laurier University, and has since taught law enforcement students.

Bill is married to Bonnie (29 years) and they have two grown children, so he appreciates the challenges and joys that come with family life in the law enforcement environment and beyond. Bill is a huge advocate of journaling (for self-awareness and personal growth) and enjoys time in the outdoors where he finds his balance, renewal and a greater appreciation for God.

Eric Hubbard – Deputy Director of Law Enforcement Ministries/Rapid Response Team

Eric Hubbard

Eric Hubbard began his law enforcement career in 2001 with the Long Beach Police Department in Southern California. He served as a patrol officer, a field training officer, on the Community Policing/Directed Enforcement Team, and was also a report writing instructor at the Long Beach Police Academy. Later, as a detective, Eric worked undercover on the Vice Night Field Team, in the Gang and Violent Crimes Division, and in the Robbery Detail.

As a sworn peace officer, Eric simultaneously served as a chaplain for the Long Beach Police Department. In addition, he served as an associate pastor at Calvary Chapel North Long Beach.

In 2015, Eric joined the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team as a volunteer chaplain and deployed to several man-made and natural disasters across the United States to provide emotional and spiritual care to those experiencing grief and loss, especially to law enforcement officers and their families.

In December of 2020, Eric retired from the Long Beach Police Department and moved to North Carolina in response to God’s call to join the Billy Graham National Law Enforcement Ministry full-time, where he serves as the deputy director of the National Law Enforcement Ministry.

Eric and his wife, Tonya, have four adult children and two grandchildren.
