He maintained his reputation for hard work, thorough scene and interview investigation, keen interrogation skills, reliable courtroom testimony, and clearance of cases through teamwork.
As a lieutenant, Olson supervised the late shift Homicide Unit for two years before moving to the Organized Crime Unit, and ultimately a federal drug task force where he supervised a covert surveillance unit.

Past training has included numerous federal, state, and privately-sponsored sessions in the following areas: profiling, cold case and DNA investigation, death investigation, interrogation techniques, crime scene processing, officer related events, surveillance, and weapons training.
