The training provided by your academy instructors was the best we have seen. We are especially pleased with the training provided to our town on Managing Law Enforcement Liability. This course has placed us on a new footing. All of our law enforcement stakeholders turned out and took this training including our Judges, Sheriff, Deputies, and Police Chief and Officers. Everyone has nothing but praise for the material and the way it was presented. Thank you again.

Charlie Graves, City Manager, City of Sonora, Texas

For years, the law enforcement and corrections clients of BancorpSouth have enjoyed the quality training provided by OSS Academy instructors. There is no doubt that your instructors bring a wealth of knowledge and talent to each lesson, that is far and beyond what is typically available from other sources.

George (Sonny) Blackwell, VP & Corporate Risk Manager, BancorpSouth

After finding OSS over 15 years ago, they fast became a favorite trusted source for providing training for our insureds. Always responsive and trustworthy, OSS remains current on court rulings, media reports, and methodology in order to provide the most state of the art education; and they do so in a manner that is informative as well as entertaining. Attendees are very satisfied with the materials they receive and with the content of the coursework.

POLICY DEVELOPMENT | … your work is outstanding and we are definitely bragging to other departments about you. We have given your information to … our neighboring town, and … Both are starting the process of revising their policies, we have shown them your work on our policy book and we gave them your information, both were impressed. Again, thank you for the … policy and your assistance.
Glenn McAuliff, Lieutenant, Country Club Hills Fire Department
POLICY DEVELOPMENT | … Recently, a Deputy was accused of a serious crime. This allegation is under investigation by the State. However, we were required to conducted a departmental investigation. Following the “ICE” policy guidelines, we navigated the incident observing the Deputy’s rights and protecting the Department’s interest. The internal investigation resulted in an employment termination without encroachment into criminal proceedings. This would have been almost impossible without a well written policy. Guidance on this one incident was well worth the purchase price. Thanks again,
Wayland Cothron, Chief Deputy, Trousdale County Sheriff’s Office
RISK MANAGEMENT | As an outside consultant, OSS has been a tremendous resource to us in the areas of design, leasing, construction, management, and legal. OSS has helped us address premise liability issues and has helped us be a better, more proactive real estate company. I have recommended OSS to other peers in the retail arena.

TRAINING | I would like to thank you and your wonderful staff for the EVO class … I have spent fifteen years in both civilian and military law enforcement … attended a lot of classes and training seminars … I applaud … OSS as training consultants and I am very impressed with the instruction … Your company is on the cutting edge in training in high liability areas.

RISK MANAGEMENT | We commend OSS for their effort in improving the risk management practices for the Cleveland Police Department.

TRAINING | One of the best parts of my job was working with OSS. I have never met a more capable, intelligent, driven, and friendly group of people.

Justin Hess, M.S. Project Manager, Content Development, Relias Learning

TRAINING | We include OSS law enforcement experts in our training to newly elected Sheriffs and find their presentations of a high quality and relevant to what a Texas enforcement agency needs regarding policies and procedures. I have nothing but good things to say about OSS. They have honored their commitment to our Association and the Sheriffs we serve and provide a valuable resource for our members.

Steve Westbrook, Executive Director, Sheriffs' Association of Texas, Austin, Texas

TRAINING | OSS law enforcement advisors have a unique combination of street, management, and risk experience. I teach many law enforcement courses, and recently used OSS multi-media training material, which I found superior to that known elsewhere.

Robert G. Hanna, Jr., Esq., Attorney at Law, Lavery, Faherty, Young & Patterson, P.C., Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

TRAINING | As a FBI Special Agent (Ret.), and Director of Life Safety at Haven for Hope, I can assure you that law enforcement, security, and safety on our campus is a high priority and dynamic! A key component of our enforcement operations is the professional support provided by OSS. When faced with the daunting challenge of designing our enforcement program and implementing strategy we turned to the folks at OSS. They assessed our objectives and core values, developed corresponding model enforcement officer course, and instructed our officers in two separate iterations. Our enforcement program and quality of training received highest praise from upper management of the San Antonio Police Department and Sherriff Ortiz.

TRAINING | I want to let you know that I appreciate you and the entire OSS Academy staff. Mr. Salmon and I have corresponded many many times regarding different courses and issues. He is very responsive and open to suggestions for classes. I was thankful for the options the OSS Academy site has to keep me updated on my training requirements at a very reasonable cost by comparison to others. I’ve made this clear to Mr. Salmon before and want to let you know as well that I believe the delivery method of the courses offered by OSS Academy are by far better than the competition. None of the competitors offer such a wide array of classes at such a reasonable cost. The OSS Academy is doing something right. I am glad to be a customer.

E. Carrasquillo, Florida Peace Officer

W. Sartain, Texas Peace Officer

TRAINING | Thank you for your email. I greatly appreciate the offer to enroll me in another course due to the Body-Mounted Cameras class not being TCOLE approved; however, that will not be necessary. My department asked me to research policies and training for BWCs. It speaks to the professionalism of OSS to make such an offer.

I am a retired FBI agent who was involved in training throughout my career and I currently conduct training and provide expert testimony for law enforcement. As a reserve officer I provide training and policy recommendations. I would like to compliment OSS for its training. I have found it to be exceptionally well done and presented in an interesting format.

R. Weston, Texas Peace Officer

TRAINING | You have an awesome company.

Z. Beauchamp, Texas Peace Officer

TRAINING | As we have talked before … OSS has been a God send for the … Sheriff’s Office as far as catching the officers up on their training requirements. In the entire year 2016 29 officers and dispatchers received 171 hours of training from the previous administration. From 1 January 2017 until present the same number has received 2368 hours of training, a large number of that has been with OSS. Thank you for being a great training partner.

I am one of many special operations guys that will be coming into various positions using (the Texas Administrative Code, RULE §219.25, License Requirements for Persons with Military Special Forces Training) process. I have been told that I’m the first to do this in the State of Texas. That being said, because of the last 24 hours of my experience with the folks there and just the sweetness (yeah I said that) of how you guys respond. I will be sending all of my brethren that are pursuing this right to you. I’m impressed. Thank you.

P. Craig, U.S. Special Forces - TCOLE Applicant

TRAINING | I am glad that there are organizations like yours out there that provide training for law enforcement that are on the move.
