Ray Guidetti retired as the Deputy Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police in 2018 at the rank of Lt. Colonel after 25 years of service.

Guidetti led the Investigations Branch, consisting of more than 600 detectives, analysts, technicians, and scientists assigned to a myriad of different units and mission areas with an annual budget of approximately $75 million.

For his efforts, he was awarded the 2006, U.S. Attorney General’s Award for Excellence in Furthering National Security, and the 2006 NJSP Trooper of the Year Award.

Ray currently consults in areas of business intelligence, due diligence, and compliance.
