Ohio Police Department

: I have attended Blue to Gold training in the past and it was excellent. Yesterday, I attended Advanced Criminal Investigations. The instructor was John Wiehn. He was very knowledgeable on the subject. He was entertaining and interactive with the class. I would attend future Blue to Gold trainings and would look for John as the instructor.
