A valuable lesson for responsible use of social media and not being too quick to judge...or to decide to destroy someone when you have don't have the whole story.

Social media for law enforcement trainer, consultant and strategist.
Introduction
I have the best wife in the world who has given me three amazing children! I love my career.  

I believe that social hand outs should never be given, but hands up should always be extended. The more people think together, the more answers can be found and new ideas created.

Knowledge is knowing that tomatoes are a fruit...wisdom is knowing not to use them in a fruit salad.

I spent 25 years as a sworn police officer working within in all areas of uniform response and several detective positions.

Created a communications office for one of the most specialized areas in policing to raise awareness and educate the public.

Established social media for policing as a normal function for policing.

Train, consult, manage and advise police, law enforcement, government and non-profits on the best practices for social media and digital media strategies.

Bragging rights
Bragging is for people who are insecure...deeds speak and history will be the judge.
