Unless hired as a law enforcement subject matter expert, the private story consulting is intended to enhance nonfiction stories. All information is based on every experience of my extensive law enforcement career. No information should be considered admissible in an actual criminal law scenario.

In my career I’ve held federal government “Secret” level clearance. Everything we discuss is held in the strictest of confidence. Both of our reputations depend upon it. Everything from an initial conversation to final negotiation remains mission sensitive.
