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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Arturo P. Vela, Dirctor of Life-Safety, Haven for Hope of Bexar County, San Antonio, Texas 78207

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.
