“I was assigned to attend your training by or PD’s training officer. In all honesty, when I read “diffusion strategies” in the email, I immediately passed a not very rosy judgment as to what the contents of the training would be. I should tell you that in the past, I have been mandated to attend training(s) where we were criticized by the (non LEO) trainers based on their personal (negative) perceptions of how we use force in our profession. Needless to say I couldn’t have been more wrong about your training. It was hands down the best training I have attended in my entire career. Hearing what you had to say about the current state of affairs in policing, how it can be avoided and what we as individual officers could do to change it, gave me hope. I walked out of the training that afternoon with a renewed view of my job and the control I had over it. I can’t recommend the L.E.A.D.S + T training highly enough. Sir, I can’t thank you enough for deciding to teach in your retirement.
As a trainer for my Department, I have been able to include some of the items I learned from your training into our Patrol Procedures training program. Once again, Thank you for what you do, it has helped me more than I can say.”
