The California Narcotic Officers' Association (CNOA) would like to extend our appreciation to you and the Multijuristictional Counterdrug Task Force Training program for the classes recently presented by Peter Boyce.
Peter presented his class, The Lawsuits Are Out To Get You, on four different dates throughout California.
I attended the class in Sacramento and found Peter to be an outstanding instructor. His knowledge and experience were clearly evident and he was able to deliver his information in a manner that was easy to understand. I thoroughly enjoyed his class and so did our members.
Because of MCTFT's commitment to law enforcement, Peter trained 275 officers in San Diego, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Dublin.
Please extend our appreciation to Peter Boyce for a job well done, and once again, thank you for supporting the training efforts of CNOA, and our goal of providing law enforcement officers the knowledge to perform their duties safely and professionally.

I am Johnathan Bragg, and I was in the class in Greenville, South Carolina that you taught a couple weeks ago. I wanted to start by saying that you are an awesome instructor. We had a lot of officers in that class and we have never had anyone come out of a class and praise the instructor as much as everyone did about you. I am the public information officer for the department now, however I learned things from your class and wish that I would have had the opportunity to take the class while I was on the road. In the little time that has passed several officers mentioned how much they have missed on traffic stops alone, and already we are making stronger cases and finding more off of traffic stops. I am interested to see if there is anything else that you teach or any other classes that you offer. We would love to send officers, including myself to these classes if so. Finally, thank you for coming and doing what you do. Stay Safe!

The recent two courses were a tremendous success. The class on Bath Salts, Opiates and Criminal Interdiction instructed by Captain Christopher Martin and Advanced Tactics for Criminal Patrol instructed by Sgt. Mike Connor were well received by @ 118 police officers. It was a pleasure to read the course critiques on the instructors wealth of experience, knowledge, enthusiasm, motivation and professionalism. I read repeated comments stating "this was the best course" and "make it a day longer".
The programs you have provided us have been needed and necessary due to our limitations with continuous budget cuts and unfortunately probably more in the near future. I can’t thank you enough for your support, cooperation and efforts. Please keep us in mind for any available classes Ct can continue to host…we are willing and able!

I attended your wiretap class this week and wanted to tell you that was sincerely one of the best classes I have taken. I've taken tons of courses, but rarely do you walk away with so much knowledge that you can apply and use to bury thugs underneath piles of evidence.I enjoy solid, long term, cases with overwelming evidence so I really appreciated the class. Thanks for teaching with such passion and doing what you did when you were on the job--- the gangs you took down were pretty impressive. My police department is over 500 and in the past ten years, the only wires that have been done were for dope. No other units consider using them. Its a shame.
Have a safe trip back home and thanks again for being a cop's cop.

I just finished attending the Intercept of Secure Communications course you gave in San Antonio. I wanted to contact you in regards to the information you presented yesterday, which was really informative. Being a HIDTA Intelligence Analyst we assist various agencies with their telephone needs (analysis, tracking, forensics, etc). I was wondering if it was possible to get copies of sample subpoenas/search warrants you all use to request information from the service providers (for call detail records, subscriber info, Verizon Ranging (RTT) reports, text message activity, etc). I am always interested in seeing on how other agencies request information. It ensures that we have our subpoena/search warrant verbiage as up to date and/or comprehensive as possible. We always like to make sure we can obtain the most from our legal demands...and comparing what we use on a daily basis to other experts in this field helps keep us on our toes...
I would be extremely grateful in any information and/or templates you can provide. I was also wondering if you give any other type of training?
I also wanted to thank you for the information you went over in class yesterday...In my experience its hard to find Tech Agents that are willing to share their knowledge/techniques with others and that make themselves available 24x7...that truly is a rare quality.
Thank you in advance,

We just finished the two day Advanced tactics for Criminal Patrol course. The instructor, Sgt. Mike Connor, was outstanding. The course reviews being forwarded will speak for themselves, however I'm compelled to add to the reviews. Mike was very knowledgeable and quite obviously a subject matter expert. His presentation was a reflection of his enthusiasm, energy, and passion for what he does professionally in law enforcement. He is welcome back anytime... in fact, I would love to bring him back in another year or two. He is a real credit to your program at St Petersburg College and the Maryland State Police.

I have been working in Law Enforcement for almost twenty years. During most of those twenty years, I have dealt with various gangs on Long Island.
Along with that, investigations have shown that many gangs use various types of secret signs, codes, symbols and ciphers. I have encountered many of those during my career in Law Enforcement. I have deciphered some of the coded letters simply because of my experience over the years working gangs.
I also have trained Correction Officers at a National Conference on the subject of Gang Codes & Ciphers. However, recently I attended [for the second time] GS Klivans' Multijurisdictional Counterdrug Task Force Training class on Gangs: Secret Signs, Codes & Symbols sponsored by NY/NJ HIDTA. Although I have seen some of the codes that the local gangs use, Klivans' training was very informative and covered many of the areas not taught elsewhere.
HIDTA continues to bring "top notch" Multijurisdictional Counterdrug Task Force Training (MCTCT) classes to local Law Enforcement Officers at no cost to them, or their agency. I have attended training by HIDTA on subjects such as Courtroom Testimony, Gangs, Interview/Interrogation, Secret Signs, Codes & Symbols and much more. Thanks to HIDTA for offering this free training in these difficult financial times.

I am a Detective in North Carolina who recently attended the MCTFT class on Wire Interception held at ROCIC in Nashville, Tennessee in mid-2011. Jerry Stanaszak and Jeff Portz were the instructors. Since the class I have also attended a wire interception course taught by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation attended a course. I found Mr. Stanaszak's presentation to be an invaluable tool in completing my agency's first application for Wire Intercept. Prior to attending the course, the procedures for conducting this type of investigation were intimidating. Mr. Stanaszak was able to show, through his outline and presentation, that this type of investigation can be accomplished at my level of law enforcement. The results of the investigation are yet to be seen but I anticipate it will be as successful if not more than as any other I have conducted due the powerful nature of the "tool" that is wire interception.

I would just like to take a moment to thank you for arranging the Canine Narcotics Operations class to be held here in Brewer Maine. The class was excellent. I saw agencies come together that had never trained together before put their training opinions aside and work together to learn a new (and extremely effective) method of training.
Frank, Tim, Mark and Corey did an outstanding job...the only complaint we had was that the seminar wasn't longer!! We wanted more! :) That says a lot about your instructors and the material they presented. I can't say enough about them...great group of guys, we really had fun with them and learned a lot. Everyone I spoke to who took the class said they would take it again in a heartbeat.

I just wanted to take a moment and like many others, thank you for your class and insight. I attended your interrogation class in West Valley City, UT in September. Since then, I have tried to apply the things I learned in your class. I could not believe how obvious the cues were when you know what to look for. One example I'd like to share was involving a female who took her baby from the women's shelter without permission and was hanging with a guy she shouldn't have been. I started asking her the questions that would make her think and followed her eyes. I did this about 3-4 times and was able to establish a good baseline. As soon as I asked an incriminating question, her eyes went to the complete opposite side and her hesitation said it all. I have reviewed a few statements provided by both victims and suspects. I have been able to find the holes and where missing information is, leading to a more thorough investigation. Other members of my department have even had me review some statements and without knowing anything about the case, i was able to point out an existing bad relationship between a male suspect and girlfriend.
I am thankful to have been able to attend your class and have requested with my department to attend an FSA class.

Back in July, 2010 (21-22) MCTFT provided a first class Meth Lab training hosted by FSA and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Chipley, Fl. You may know this is a rural area in the Panhandle of Florida where training is often neglected. The instructors Brian Sallee and Bruce Liebe were able to connect well with the class and delivered an awesome and informative class. This was no surprise to me because of my familiarity with the MCTFT work product. At the end of the class Sheriff Haddock thanked all concerned and reinforced the real need of that training for his people and the law enforcement community in that area.
Yesterday our Executive Director Steve Casey was at the capitol at a drug law hearing and ran into Sheriff Haddock and his Chief of Investigations Captain John Braxton who were there testifying. They relayed this story. They had wanted to thank FSA and MCTFT for that class back in July. It seems that they went from almost no meth lab cases being made previous to the training to shutting down seventy labs in the six months since the training.
To me this exemplifies what the mission of MCTFT has always been about and the importance of keeping it going so that communities like Washington County can be made a safer place to live for its citizens.

I took your interview and interrogation class last year in Maine. You would be proud to know that I am keeping up with my studies in statement analysis, and have been using it every time I can. I have had successes in cases by applying the principles I learned in your class. The other officers at my police department have been handing over to me statements before they begin their interviews, and I have been advising them on what areas they need to concentrate on when beginning interrogation.
We have just had a big case come our way. After reviewing the case details and using the techniques I learned in your class, it seems to me that some details are fabricated. You have opened my eyes to something in law enforcement that I am so passionate about and I hope a conviction in this case will get the rest of the guys passionate about this great tool as well.

The interview and interrogation class has allowed me, and the investigative captain at my institution, to successfully obtain a confession from a corrupt medical employee. At the beginning of the interview, we had no evidence that the employee was involved, except information provided by an inmate that was involved, and the employee’s responses gave me the impression that she would be difficult to break.
The techniques you taught allowed us to intercept the contraband and uncover a scheme that posed a large threat to the safety of the public and officers.

I’ve been to several Interview and Interrogation classes and none came close to helping me the way your class did. Earlier this week two inmates got into a fight, they both said they were playing football and that’s how they explained the cuts and bruises. I had them write their statements out, I did just what you taught going through the words and finding things that don’t make sense and add up. I talked to them again afterwards and they both admitted to the fight. After we locked them both up, they both apologized for lying to me and wanted to know how I figured out they weren’t injured playing football, when four Officers just let them go. I just told him “they talked too much”, and neither one knew what I meant. Thanks a lot for all you help.
Just in the last week the three of us that took your class have used it successfully on over a dozen situations involving inmate activities. The Warden was so impressed that she wants to train all of our Supervisors with your course.

Have spoken to my admin and coordinated with our detective division and have concluded to start a Hotel Interdiction program in our city. I have spoken with one of our hotels and they are absolutely ecstatic about the program.
Thank you for your time,

“There is no price tag I can put for the amount of FREE training that SPC has given me, I know it has saved my life (and others) a number of times on the streets and on the battlefield.”
A note to let you know that the two instructors for the Gang Class received glowing comments on the evals we do here internally. Some said these were the best instructors for any class they have attended. I sat thru much of the class and I would have to agree they are two of the best instructors we have hosted here at North Texas HIDTA.
Thanks for sending such great instructors for a very popular subject in this area.

I am employed by Gulf Coast Community Care in Tampa, Florida. My agency has been commissioned by the Hillsborough Criminal Justice Department to operate an Anti Gang Initiative program, designed to detour children ranging from ages 7 to 14 from entering into gangs or participate in gang activity. We have partnered with the FBI and founded the FBI Jr. Special Agent Academy.
As part of the class curriculum, the students must participate with some kind of physical activity to build teamwork, a positive attitude and good decision making skills that will help guide them into the right direction as they advance into adulthood. The Hillsborough State Attorney’s office directed me to your Multijurisdictional Counterdrug Task Force Training (MCTF) program.
On March 7, 2009, at our facility in Tampa, your department stepped forward to help our FBI Cadet Class to accomplish this mission. Each student experienced this class and the wall climbing (The Everest Challenge) event. I can’t begin to explain how awesome this program was and how it enlightened these kids to experience this class. I will say this, it was absolutely Awesome!
On behalf of the Gulf Coast Community Care Agency, I want to thank you and the MCTF staff instructors for coming to our facility. It was the MCTF program that we needed to complete our program and to advance the first FBI Jr. Special Agent Academy class.
We have sent pictures of our March 7th event. Please thank your instructor staff for all of their efforts. They were efficient, professional, kind hearted to the children, and your staff demonstrated the leadership (we are proud to say) that we desperately wanted to educate the Cadets and send them forward.
We salute the Multijurisdictional Counterdrug Task Force and we thank your organization for allowing this program to be a part of the cadet’s experiences.

I was one of the patrol officers in your last class at the MD HIDTA Training Center. I don't want to end my day until I tell you this story. When I began my patrol this morning, I told my partner all about the techniques that I learned in the last three days. I told him that I was going to interview someone today. At almost noon, I stopped a car for a window tint violation. I separated the occupants and began compiling my case. I got a confession from both people. Success!
Well, I don't think I would be boasting to you if it was only this case. I began to push further and got one of them talking both in the field and eventually back at the station. Using the skills that I learned in the class, we are in the process of picking up the suspect in another case. Thanks again for the class!

On behalf of the Department of General Services - Maryland Capitol Police, we wanted to express our appreciate to you for the training on Criminal Street Gang Investigations. It was extremely informative, and the class size and participation illustrated the importance of the topic to Police, and Corrections. We had seventy-three officers from nineteen different agencies in attendance.
SEPSI / MCTFT is an excellent source of quality training, and we appreciate your instructors personally taking time to provide us with the timely information. Their material was up to date, lively and brought home the importance of gang investigations.

I wanted to write and personally THANK YOU for offering me, and other employees with the DHS Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the opportunity to participate in the St. Petersburg College Multijurisdictional Counterdrug Task Force Training INTERVIEW and INTERROGATION course conducted at the Naples Sheriff’s Office with instructor Gary Aschenbach.
I am a fairly new TSA Inspector at Southwest Florida International Airport and the course and instructor were the best that I have attended since joining TSA in August 2007. Having attended many courses of instruction during a 30-year military career, the INTERVIEW and INTERROGATION course was by far one of the best and provided me with skills that I will be able to use not only as an Inspector with TSA but also for the rest of my life.

I just wanted to pass this along to you and THANK YOU for all you have done
to bring the gang initiative to the forefront. If it wasn't for me sitting
in your class in Jacksonville about 2 years ago, none of these successes would be
I've learned a lot along the way, but you were my
inspiration and you provided me with the foundation I needed. I knew
nothing until you came along. You should be very proud of what you started
and much, if not all, of this success is owed to you!
Thank you and Congratulations!

I wanted to drop a line and tell you a very simple success story. My first night on patrol back to work after attending your class in Ogden Utah I went to a suspicious person call. A known male was standing at the front door of his own residence where he had in the past few weeks, stole his cousins pay check, forged his signature, and cashed it. The suspect’s own family wouldn’t let him in the house because of the theft. I began interviewing the suspect where he began playing the “why would I take the check” game. I simply recognized him omitting the crime, I continued the conversation and told him that the check city where he cashed the check recorded him cashing the check and it had been confirmed that it was him (I didn’t threaten and I didn’t promise like you taught us).
To make a long story even longer he finally admitted to taking the check, forging his cousin’s name and cashing the check. I knew that I was about to get a confession when the suspect raised his hands in front of his mouth (in praying form) and began mumbling his words. I was on cloud nine for the rest of the night and began telling 10-15 year veterans about your class, this coming from a rookie only on the road for one year.
