I own a couple of Anthony Bandiero books and have found them tremendously helpful. This course adds essential clarification of 4th Amendment issues that law enforcement officers engage with every day. This training was clear, concise and full of outstanding information. I highly recommend it.

As with most courses the instructor makes or breaks the training and Anthony is a great instructor and I have really enjoyed all of his classes.

5

DeRosa Michael

I have been in LE for 21 years. I have a large binder full of course certificates. This course, by far one of the best. It was challenging in a very outstanding way. You leave this course with the knowledge you need not just a certificate. Thank you Anthony!

5

Ken Davis

This is a review of the entire week not just the CSSI portion. Anthony engaged the class throughout the week even though it was virtual. Shared a lot of information and had case law to support it not just an interpretation. Gave tons of resources to utilize after the class.

5

Jeremy Graves

Anthony did a great job of explaining everything to help me feel more confident if my search and seizure abilities. He provided all the resources I need to become a resident expert at my department and has great insight.

5

Matthew Harbin

The absolute best search and seizure training. 24 hours of advanced training, case reviews and table-top scenarios followed by 16 hours of instructor development, complicated case breakdowns and the best part, Anthony teaches you how to read and breakdown cases. I used to look at cases and go cross-eyed. Now I can pick out the constitutional issues, break them down and write an intelligent case summary. The exam is no joke, detailed asking the real questions about the most important cases and scenarios where you determine the constitutional issues. This is well put together and thorough. I would compare the level of detail in this course to a DRE program, it is that complete. I will continue to return to Anthony and the Blue to Gold Team for all my Search and Seizure training.

I just completed a two-day training in Advanced Search and Seizure and Advanced Criminal Investigations in Jackson, WY. This was by far the most entertaining and knowledgeable training I have attended in my short three years of Law Enforcement. Anthony Bandiero is very intelligent and I hope more law enforcement agencies seek him out to expand their knowledge.
