The centerpiece of the Professional Development Package is this 245-page E-book*, a crowning achievement for my co-author and me. For years I had wanted to publish the powerful principles of Police Dynamics in a book format, but time and my job responsibilities as Sheriff just didn’t allow it. I

Dynamic of Coactivity
Coactive policing is a philosophy, not a program. Crime, as a community problem, demands a community solution. Discover how the power for effective change rests within your relationships with the citizens you serve.
Dynamic of Character
Character is the seed that produces the fruit of high achievement. Most police training programs focus on competencies, yet most of our problems pertain to character. Learn how to build trust-based relationships by re-establishing the character standard within your police organization.
Dynamic of Authority
As the cornerstone of the Police Dynamics program, the Dynamic of Authority is critical for effective law enforcement. Most instances of police misconduct are the result of ego-driven officers operating “out from under authority.” Faithfully representing the authorities over you and remaining under their protection is key to avoiding negative consequences and building essential trust-based relationships.
Dynamic of Restoration
Most officer stress stems from internal relationships. Unresolved conflicts often result in hurt, depression, anger, and jealousy.
Dynamic of Strongholds
Simply enforcing the law might solve a crime, but it does not solve the problem of crime. Criminals often rule the streets through fear and intimidation.
Dynamic of Relationships
Building trust-based relationships takes time, effort, and good character. Reduce frustration by understanding the complex dynamics involved in building vital relationships with the community you serve.
