I began my education at Michigan State University in Police Administration in 1967 and policed in Ann Arbor , Michigan from 1967 - 1970. I was then appointed to the faculty of the University of Illinois Police Training Institute and taught numerous joint courses for both law enforcement and corrections. These classes were in a wide range of subjects including; the use of force, strategy and tactics, policy designs and deliver, procedural performance,etc. In 1990 I was selected by the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center to create the first Use of Force Model for all Federal agencies. The same model or its components are still utilized extensively in our country and in democratic societies throughput the world. I have written numerous books and articles on such contemporary issues as control tactics, searching procedures, administrative demands, etc.
