John Wiehn is a great instructor. This was one of the best courses I’ve taken as a LEO. It was informative and very relevant. Instead of putting us to sleep with PowerPoint, John was able to keep it lively and interactive. I really liked how he taught the Federal Law and the State Law. I look forward to taking another course taught by John

I took Advanced Search and Seizure and Advanced Traffic Stops with John. As we all know, Washington state is very restrictive with police affairs. John dove deep into case law to provide Officers with more tools, and dispel commonly accepted beliefs regarding WA laws. And he did so in a fun and captivating manner. You can tell that John is knowledgeable and passionate about his job. Every self-respected LEO needs to take these courses — even the salty vets who may think they know it all. Thanks again John. I look forward to your next class in WA.

I enjoy all Blue to Gold trainings I have taken. Switching from one circuit to another can be confusing, this class helps me understand Search and Seizure as it applies to federal law, not just common practice.

Instructor was very knowledgeable and made a known boring subject of case law very interesting and extremely educational. Kept the class engaged and was able to connect on an LEO level due to his prior LEO experience. It was surprisingly top notch and educational training that I expected to be outright boring.

The class was awesome. It was obvious to me as I was taking the test how much of the information I retained. John did an excellent job presenting the material. I have already spoke with Erahan about bring John back April 2024 for a week to present the report writing class. I also really liked the format of the class as well as the testing procedure. Great Job!

I attended the advanced search and seizure course with John Wiehn. He did a great job explaining different case laws to us and making sure we had an understanding of everything he was teaching us. Every law enforcement professional should take this course. We are all one call away from being case law ourselves and this course will protect you from that. Even though John is an attorney he keeps the class interesting and encourages questions as he was a cop himself not that long ago.

I took the 4-day session including Search & Seizure, Traffic Stops/Searches, Search Warrants, and Interviews & Interrogations, and I honestly was not prepared for how much I had to learn. Being in law enforcement for 10 years and still having so many questions makes me wish I had access to or knew about this training earlier on, however I am grateful that I had the chance to take these courses! The topics are clear and relevant, the instructor (John) was relatable, funny, and extremely knowledgeable, and he was able to answer any outstanding questions I had. I am much more confident in these areas and have a greater understanding of the legal responsibilities I have in this profession and am very grateful that this training is available! VERY highly recommended!

I really enjoyed what the class had to offer. The report writing classes I’ve had are no more than 2 hours long and this was really in-depth. This class also explained the legality side of how your report can cause you to have a hard day in court. I learned a ton and hope to share everything I learned with my agency and fellow Deputies. John was also very knowledgeable and made a report writing class entertaining! I would recommend the classes and knowledge Blue to Gold has to offer to every agency in the U.S.!

This training was great. It was presented in a way that makes the information extremely understandable. It also made me rethink the way some things are and have been done at my agency in the past.

As a new officer, this course was exactly what I needed (and exactly what my FTO who recommended Blue to Gold described).

I am definitely more confident in my work.

I believe this class is crucial to both the new and veteran officer. The information is provided in an easy to understand method with references you can apply to your duties immediately. I highly recommend this training.

5

Travis Thompson

I loved the way the material was presented in a way that was easy of the "lay-cop" to understand. It was also presented in a way that was easy to remember and apply on scene, in the moment. I consider myself fairly squared away on search and seizure and still considered this class very worth while. So, thank you.

Paul Irwin

Great class and very useful. I have taught search and seizure and I enjoyed this class and your books. You are an asset to our profession.

How often do you encounter curriculum with dated case law and it's presented as the latest and greatest? Not this course, the references here are absolutely relevant and up to date as of Oct 2023. (course was taken 5/24). The course was well presented and clearly articulated the material in a manner such that I could work patrol tonight and put the lessons learned into practice. I'll approach curtilage with a newfound appreciation and always bring my C.R.E.W. With me.

Mr. Biggs recently taught the advanced search and seizure class in Gillette, WY and as a whole I think the common opinion of Mr Biggs was "wow, he can teach, and this class is entertaining, informative, and he's a really cool guy." He gave ample examples, was clearly knowledgeable on the subjects and super thorough. He gained everybody's respect in a matter of minutes and I think from here on out we will all think back to this class and what Mr. Biggs taught us throughout our careers. It is rare to find people who are passionate for what they do and that care and especially who can teach the subject well. You have a great instructor and he needed credit where credits was due!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Advanced Search and Seizure. It is helpful to hear how the cases specifically on premises were explained in court. This is a subject that is rarely focused on in annual training but would be one of the most helpful in making quick and sound decisions.

The class is very informative and something all law enforcement agencies should have. I would prefer the class be expanded to maybe two days so a lot more discussion could happen and more information broke down. Overall would recommend the class to any LE officer.

Attended the Search and Seizure class in Brighton, CO. This is hands down the best legal training I’ve gotten in 15+ years on Law Enforcement. I feel veteran officers would benefit greatly, as I have, by attending this class.

Fort Lupton PD

Advanced Search and Seizure: the course and instructor were excellent. I’m a self-proclaimed 4th Amendment nerd and place a high value on protecting peoples’ rights. This class gave me a better understanding of some case law I did not have confidence in. In this profession, you need to know the “why” behind your action or inaction and if you are unsure about where your legal authority begins and ends, I recommend this course. Do not trust the old-timers in your agency that have been around for decades. Know current case law and trust yourself and your education. This course is awesome.

Extremely helpful for a new officer like myself. Provided a lot of clarity for discussions had during the academy.

The course was great because of all the case law review and application to real world scenarios, including those offered by the class. It’s nice to confirm our authority in some grey areas as well as to see how small difference in details can make otherwise similar situations vastly different when it comes to constitutional violations or not.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the search and seizure class, and I must say it was an eye-opening experience. As a supervisor, I found this course invaluable in providing new insights on how to ensure our deputies respect and uphold individuals’ civil rights during law enforcement activities. I firmly believe that this class should be a fundamental part of every deputy’s training within the first year of their career. The instructor’s expertise and teaching style were exceptional. Not only was he highly knowledgeable about the subject matter, but he also managed to make the learning process engaging and entertaining. His approach to the topic kept the class both informative and enjoyable.

I've always loved Blue to Gold's videos and free classes. I got into them because Bandiero used to work at my agency. I read Nevada Search and Seizure cover to cover a couple times and scored top for detective testing out of around 12 people. Not a lot for most agencies but still significant for us. I attribute that scoring to Blue to Gold's book. I constantly am loaning out my books to people who want to advance themselves and encourage everyone else to get them too. They are a cops biggest tool for in the field and career development. The instructor for this class is super knowledgeable and being that he used to be a cop, makes him relatable to us. Not just some attorney. Online training is tough but he and his team are doing a great job addressing questions from in person and online students.

I just completed the Blue to Gold Traffic Stop and Arrest, Search, and Seizure course at my agency. What an absolutely phenomenonal course. I have learned more in the past two days than I did in my Police Academy. The course content was extremely applicable to our daily tasks on the street. I highly recommend these courses and look forward to taking many more in the near future! Thank you Chris McFarlin!

Advanced Search & Seizure


Our Advanced Search and Seizure training is designed to equip officers with the knowledge and skills they need to independently analyze and solve Fourth Amendment problems, leading to a reduction in lawsuits and the ability to establish good case law. By the end of this course, students will have a solid understanding of when the Fourth Amendment applies, the requirement of consent, recognized exceptions, and the necessity of a warrant for every search or seizure.

I loved the way the material was presented in a way that was easy of the "lay-cop" to understand. It was also presented in a way that was easy to remember and apply on scene, in the moment. I consider myself fairly squared away on search and seizure and still considered this class very worth while. So, thank you.

How often do you encounter curriculum with dated case law and it's presented as the latest and greatest? Not this course, the references here are absolutely relevant and up to date as of Oct 2023. (course was taken 5/24). The course was well presented and clearly articulated the material in a manner such that I could work patrol tonight and put the lessons learned into practice. I'll approach curtilage with a newfound appreciation and always bring my C.R.E.W. With me.

Mr. Biggs recently taught the advanced search and seizure class in Gillette, WY and as a whole I think the common opinion of Mr Biggs was "wow, he can teach, and this class is entertaining, informative, and he's a really cool guy." He gave ample examples, was clearly knowledgeable on the subjects and super thorough. He gained everybody's respect in a matter of minutes and I think from here on out we will all think back to this class and what Mr. Biggs taught us throughout our careers. It is rare to find people who are passionate for what they do and that care and especially who can teach the subject well. You have a great instructor and he needed credit where credits was due!
