The Trilogy has been an amazing experience for me, really made a lasting impression on me, and will effect me both professionally and personally." 

-Roy Vasque, Lawrence Police Department

- F. Jortner, Cheshire Police Dept.

"I will be sending all supervisors to this class. It will be mandatory for all new sergeants."

 - Ofc. Darrell G. Fennelly, Sturbridge Police Department

"Most law enforcement training has, at best, one good day of training sandwiched in between four bad days of training. This course was the exception. All four days were great and useful."

- Sgt. Jerrod Kinsman, Fort Collins Police Department

"I have attended several classes on leadership and was disappointed with them because they were not geared toward law enforcement. This class was and is truly the best leadership class I have taken."

"(Tim Plotts) has excellent presentation skills. He has a superior knowledge base of the subject. This has been the finest course that I have EVER taken."

 - Trooper Michael J. Smith, Texas Highway Patrol

"Dean is an outstanding instructor. I have heard many instructors in 40 years, and Dean ranks in the top performers. He remains current through reading and study. He engages students, allows input, and is enthusiastic. He provided great information that I plan to put to use when I return to the workplace. Great job!"

"Capt. Allen was outstanding. Great speaker. He motivated me to go back and be an inspiration at my agency."

 - Lt. Robert DiPersio, Hudson Police Department

"It is obvious that both instructors had the experience needed to teach a class like this, and comforting for a new first line supervisor to realize that mistakes are going to happen. I learned that it is not the mistakes but how you learn from them that makes you a true leader in the end. Thanks for the great instruction!"

 - Sgt. Joseph Christiansen, Independence Police Department

"Dean is a great instructor. He not only teaches supervision techniques and tendencies; he gets to the core of every student's philosophy and give ideas, alternatives, and tools for them to use in everyday life."
