The Seminars not only guide participants through the myriad of decisions involved in developing their own comprehensive “Line-of-Duty Death Protocol”, John also motivates participants to take action.

“It is vital to develop a Line-of-Duty Death Protocol well in advance of a crisis. Few agency or department administrators have been through a line-of-duty death as active participants, and most funeral homes know even less. But a poorly executed police funeral is an embarrassment to the city, the department, and the officer’s family.”
“My seminars & workshops will help police agencies and those responsible for managing police funerals better understand the tasks associated with such an event. The information provided represents my knowledge, experience and personal opinions.”
