“Don’s books demand students be interactive and leaves them with the feeling that they got their hands dirty. Law enforcement training is such that we train the most on the things that we do the least. These books give officers a simple and easy way to review what matters most.”

Asa Stiles, Law Enforcement Department Supervisor, Lake Area Technical Institute
