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.

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.

Incredible class. I used the Search and Seizure Survival Guide for 4 years prior to this class. This class dove deeper into a crucial subject for all officers, and provided a more in depth understanding.

5

W.W.

Clearfield City PD
Utah

Mastering Search and Seizure was an eye opening class and allowed me to look at search and seizure in a new light. I had nothing to compare it to when learning about 4th amendment in the academy, but now that I have some experience it helps me know why I can do what I do.

Advanced Criminal Investigations


In this comprehensive training program, we will delve deep into case law, providing you with a thorough understanding of how to respond legally and effectively to a wide range of challenging situations. From undercover operations to anonymous tips, constructive possession issues, and more, our course covers it all. You will learn how to articulate these complex issues in a legally defensible manner, ensuring your investigations are rock-solid.

Breanna Leingang

I've been in law enforcement for 9 years now, spending the last few as an investigator. What these Blue to Gold courses are teaching me is that LEOs should be getting far more training on the law and how it can work in their favor. It's taken me this long to learn how to properly apply Miranda yet ensure that application does not destroy my investigation. Same goes for search and seizure. LEOs should be just as up to speed on case law as our DAs. This was a great course!

5

William Charbonneau

Great Course!

Raymond Wegrzynek

Very useful info. I love that you have an explanation of the video or summary below. Helps get. A better understanding of information.

5

Mark Davis

Amazing course. The instructor provides many details over subjects that are routine in everyday law enforcement and should be considered "Basic knowledge." but explains each topic in ways that help officers actually understand the legal reasons why they can/can't do something.

5

Sylvia Felder

This course really enlightened me and I learned a lot of small tidbits that will help me out on the streets.

5

Colby Green

As a newer officer, this lesson answered many questions for me. Some of the information given (with case law to support) even corrects what some of my senior officers have told me is illegal (not against policy, but illegal). I would HIGHLY recommend this class to any offclicer - new, through Admin.

Rashaan Mitchell

This training opened my eye and was awesome!

5

Amanda Williams

This 8-hour class is amazing. It is broken down into different lessons and each lesson was very informative and included case law, video break-downs/discussions and real-life scenarios. This class also has assessments after the lessons to keep the learner engaged in the class. This class is very informative and all encompassing on topics like, single purpose container doctrine, collective knowledge doctrine, how to improve your undercover investigations, use of CI's, and much more!

5

Colin Rogers

Excellent coverage of subject matters especially breaking down into easily understandable terminology and concepts. Will for sure be doing more on demand courses in the future.

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.

Bulletproof Report Writing


Bulletproof Report Writing is primarily focused on training officers the required articulation skills that will help them construct legally defensible police reports. Officers need to produce detailed and solid statements on encounters that allow prosecutors to charge defendants without asking for follow-up information. The key ingredient is the power to articulate and officers will learn this vital skill.

I attended the Bullet Proof Report Writing course in Henderson this week. Having never bought into the bare minimum amount of training per year, I have invested good deal of my free time taking courses over the last 30 years. I found the recent course in Henderson to one , if not the best organized and best presented, I have ever taken. I felt my time was well vested. I look forward to trying out some of the webinars next.

The book was filled with knowledge to help and understand the class and further my skills to write. The class was more based on the 4th amendment than being a better report writer.

I enjoyed all the classes by Blue To Gold so far! The deep dive into how our legal system interprets our actions and how we can better explain our actions is literal gold. The understanding the classes teach leads to a better application of the law and thus a better understanding of it as well. I hope to see more classes from Blue to Gold offered to my agency and fellow officers in Colorado.

The way this class was taught and presented needs to be in the academy. This should be required training for Feild Training Officers teaching Officers In Training how to write reports. I had report write explained in so many different ways that I struggled to write clear and concise reports. This class is going to help improve greatly!

5

Report writing....I think this class had a lot of great information related to report writing. The information was easy to comprehend. I think there was a decent amount of search and seizure topics, maybe some of that can be scaled back. The book is a cherry on top! Thank you!
