I attended Zaki's emerging legal trends class in Bethel Ohio. The class was excellent. The topics were on point, especillay search incident to arrest and drones. Zaki is an exceptional instructor. His passion to help officers understand the law is obvious. He took the time to answer all questions and made the topic interesting. As a current detective in Ohio, he was able to address Ohio specific issues which I found to be interesting. This is my 4th blue to gold in-person class with Zaki. A+ instructor and A+ training.

5

Jacob TenBrink

Today's class has been very informative. Although no one likes to sit and look at slides all day, our instructor has made it engaging and interactive, instead of just speaking to us through the slides. I would recommend this training to all police personnel.

This class had very good information and it will be helpful moving forward. This kind of stuff is what I build my professionalism around. I am not the biggest person in law enforcement and this kind of stuff seems to help me more than people understand. It's helped me in so many different situations. I appreciate how you taught the class it kept me focused.

5

Tyler Olsen

When I was forced to complete this training I was a little annoyed I had to watch 4 hours worth of video. As the training went on I actually learned a lot. It was great information, provided great tips and tricks, the instructor was chill and appeared to be himself and wasn't being too professional for the camera. It was a great training.

5

John Heppler

This course was actually very good. I went into it with low expectations because web-based training can be rough, however, the instructor was engaging, articulate, funny, and on point. The videos were great. The subject's relevance to current events was definitely helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone in need of some good de-escalation training.

5

Darren Pfeifer

All 4 classes I took were amazing. They were packed with all kinds of useful modern-day information, and the instructor did it in a way that kept the class engaged. Would recommend it to everyone in law enforcement.

5

J. M.

Nebraska

Another great set of classes. We are mandated to take de-escalation and duty to intervene classes here, but BtG made a very dry subject into one that was not only palatable but enjoyable! John Wiehn was an excellent instructor and an expert on the subject matter. Plenty of good videos and cop anecdotes kept things engaging as well. 10/10 would go to any BtG training if they are as good as these two classes.

Real World De-escalation: Incredibly relevant and applicable. It’s great to hear this sort of training from those who have backgrounds as LE and attorneys.

5

B. B.

South Carolina

I’m still quite new to law enforcement so sitting in the de-escalation class was very informative. It explains some ways that I can better explain things to try and de-escalate a situation. However, it also explains that not all situations are able to be de-escalated. Which made me feel more confident in judging if a situation will be able to be de-escalated or not.

De-escalation This class was incredible. I really appreciated the videos that incorporated real-life situations in which the techniques were applied. Our instructor did an awesome job conveying the material.

5

Z. B.

This de-escalation class greatly helped in reviewing and informing officers of great de-escalation tactics to employ and the situations in which they should be employed. The instructor did a great job at presenting the material and showed videos that provided conversations and how they relate to the de-escalation principles.

5

C. W.

South Carolina

De-escalation class. The class was very in-depth in providing step-by-step processes to effectively de-escalate and non-escalate some situations that it is appropriate to utilize. The instructor having both LE and legal experience provided two different points of view on situations that are pivotal in how situations can proceed.

Duty to Intervene


As law enforcement professionals, the responsibility to safeguard justice extends not only to our interactions with the public but also within our own ranks. Failing to intervene can have dire consequences, from termination to criminal charges and civil rights lawsuits. Our groundbreaking Duty to Intervene course is a comprehensive solution, arming officers with essential skills to prevent unnecessary use of force, enhance community trust, and intervene safely and effectively.

Henry DeJean

This course was very easy to follow and created an informative & educational building block which every law enforcement agency should build upon. As dynamic as public safety is, the importance of building trust and partnerships with the community are invaluable. The only way for LEO to conduct themselves is from a professional standard.

Moral class that all police officer should take

5

Mark Hatz

I have a whole new understanding of the Duty to Intervene. Which is to say I had no prior understanding of the Duty to Intervene. This course should be mandatory.

I am a supervisory special agent with the FDA Office of Criminal Investigations assigned to Headquarters. Our office recently acquired your training portals regarding Duty to Intervene and Real World De-escalation. I have been a federal law enforcement officer for 33 years- and I want to express my appreciation for a very well-put-together program. Things have changed over the time I have served in law enforcement and I think your program effectively confronts the issues that we as law enforcement professionals must cope with. I am assigned to headquarters, but some of the things you address (especially in the Real World De-escalation portal) are measures that I can consider practicing with the management of my own staff in the office setting. Again—thank you and thanks for making us better law enforcement personnel!

Blue to Good Law Enforcement Training is great all around from their training course to their customer service. I ordered a package book set and in the set they sent me one of the wrong books which I reached out about. Richard Bandiero immediately got back to me and sent out the correct book. Richard was extremely helpful and professional in a timely manner.
