Bright Line Consulting was founded in 2010 on the premise that law enforcement bears the responsibility to effectively take action to circumvent criminal activity in a proactive manner. Police must stand strong even when they do not know what tomorrow may bring. Professional ethics are the foundation.


Guidance and insight provided during training brings the highest return any police agency can receive. My passion is to prepare, educate, and motivate today’s officers who will be tomorrow’s leaders. The best way to do this is to provide subject matter experts to speak at reasonable prices for law enforcement agencies or motivated officers to pay for personally.


As a consultant, my advice to every administrator is to train, keep up with emergent case law, treat training as an investment, not an expense, document training, become accredited agencies, and document all actions taken by department members. Doing so will allow police agencies to keep their focus on the street vs. the courtroom.
