A few testimonials from John's most recent course:

"I have never been to a STORM Training Group course before, but it was different being taught by someone who is both a police officer and an attorney.  The knowledge John had was great, especially with knowing both sides.  The topics were important and he knew what he was talking about." 

     -Anissa Ng, Lino Lakes Police Department

"Very knowledgeable - had job experience and was able to use first hand experiences.  What I liked most was the items pertained directly to the job."

     -Charles Mahon, MSP Airport Police Department 

"The combination of lawyer and police officer is incredibly rare, which makes for great material and training.  Great refresher, even after 14 years on the job."

     -Dan Thill, Lino Lakes Police Department

"New officers should go through this course."

"Lots of real world examples and stories."

"It was great to hear examples from Minnesota law, a lot of instructors teach only federal law.  Instructor was LEO and attorney, it was great to hear from both sides."
