TRAINING HIGHLIGHTS - From Most Recent to Earliest

    Over the years, I have achieved Police Firearms Expert and Master Certifications, including seven years of competitive shooting on the California police combat and Camp Perry Bullseye shooting circuit.

    In addition, I have received hands-on training in pressure point control tactics (PPCT), TASERS, police pursuit driving and police motorcycle operation, chemical agents, police batons and truncheon devices, hand-to-hand combat, handcuffs and other restraint devices, and the use of stop sticks.
