Lt. Vanghele, Newtown (CT) Police Dept.


Very, very good presentation. Highly recommended! Ron takes the time to seal with the class and not speak at them. He makes the training personnel. All the topics he discussed were relevant to issues we are currently dealing with.

Capt. Hardeman, Prince William County (VA) Sheriff’s Office


I attended your outstanding class yesterday in Grafton with a fellow sergeant.  We were both impressed with the information you provided to all the officers.  At one point during the discussion, actually at several points during the day, I looked over at my fellow sergeant and asked him if you had spent some time in our police station!   It seemed that everything you were saying hit home, for me anyways. Chief, once again thanks for the great class, and keep up the excellent work that you do.

Sgt. Gallerani, Plainville (MA) Police Dept.


The communication techniques are outstanding as well as tips on how to deal with personnel issues.
