Very necessary to have & continue to have. Helped me to better understand where my authority comes from and effectively apply it to the job.
This course provided me with the knowledge and understand on how to properly perform my duties as a law enforcement officer.
Very good. Tests/videos/interaction with class hits all areas of learning. From administrative to patrol.
The passion in which material is delivered makes an otherwise dry subject easy and fun to learn. For some reason Don makes it incredibly easy to retain information.
Presentations are always presented with passion, which keeps the class engaged.
One of the most practical and useful classes I have had in almost 12 years. Very clear cut material and did not leave grey area. Great job.
Learned a lot of new information, things that I thought were correct but were wrong and vice versa. Better understanding of Terry Frisk, Stop, and Use of Force.
Awesome – Great content – you kept class moving – great energy – challenging – eye opening… great feedback from those who attended… highly recommended!! No matter the years in the profession – you need this training! High energy – challenging – informative – passionate – honest. Fearless presentation – thanks Don!! Knowledge backed by experience!
Great course. Lots of stuff that I had forgotten over the years, and plenty of stuff I did not know.
This course is an absolute game changer! Don’s passion for this profession and training is unmatched.
Exceptional Training!! Very interactive and challenging! Boosted my confidence for sure.
Great class. Thanks for everything.
Thank you for putting on this training. Makes me feel much more comfortable in myself and knowing why I can do certain things. Thank you again.
Very interesting, and informative class. Don is obviously a subject matter expert, and clearly enjoys his role in educating other officers.
The training that Don provides is exceptional and would be beneficial for law enforcement officers of all levels of experience and rank. The courses regarding use of force and search and seizure are highly recommended.
There is a clear difference between all other instructors and Don McCrea. My point becomes very apparent immediately upon entering his classroom. The vastness of Don’s knowledge never ceases to amaze me and the quickness of his recollection to a specific case law makes everyone so much more confident in what they are doing. Having worked with Don for several years and having him as an instructor in the academy has shown me over and over that he is the expert in use of force/ search and seizure/ reasonable suspicion and many more categories I’m sure not being listed. Bottom line; you want to learn from Don, you will never forget it.
First course I’ve had on these subjects that gave definitive and specific answers. Scenario based learning was great. Great course overall!
Don, The lessons I learned from you will never be forgotten. Your passion left such an impression on me. Your desire to see your students succeed made it so. Thank you for all your instruction… Thank you for having faith in me!
Don’s presentation will significantly improve your understanding of the 4th Amendment through definitive answers and examples that are based on his expert knowledge and experience. His presentation will cause you to realize how important it is for officers to receive and stay current with this training.
Should be an annual training for L.E. – excellent class.
Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge & passion for getting better LEOs on our streets & in our communities!
Amazing course, would recommend anyone in law enforcement to take this course. Very informative. Excited to use what I learn in the field. Thank you!
Very informative. Delivery made material easy to retain and gave examples for application.
You know your material – keep up the great instruction
This course presentation was all around awesome. The information has given me confidence in my job and authority. This information and course needs to be given to as many officers as possible to save our profession. I confidently know why I do the things I do day-to-day and it’s important that I can articulate why I have my authority.
You are one of the best instructors I have had the pleasure to learn from. The course kept me engaged and interested. Great course.
The way the course material was utilized to help us both learn and understand is nothing short of remarkable and may be the reason some of us don’t get sued!
Gained a massive uptick in understanding of many aspects that have confused me. Extremely happy I took the course.
Not only do I better understand the concepts taught in this course, I feel more confident in my ability to apply them practically on the street and if needed, defend my actions in court.
-Very knowledgeable instructor
-Motivating information to be a better cop
Best course I have ever taken. This should be a mandatory duty to take this class.
Very good training that addresses the real issues in today’s L.E. & how we as a profession are hurting ourselves legally & relationally with our communities. Every officer needs this & needs it frequently.
Very applicable class. Instructor very knowledgeable and makes sure you understand answers.
Was ordered to attend and glad that I was. Excellent course.
Great class, intense training that will help me on the street.
Probably the most beneficial training I have ever attended in my 6 years on the job. I found it very engaging and the instructor’s energy and knowledge on the subjects presented was extraordinary.
Could not have asked for a better class. Very informative and extremely important material.
Fantastic course and went into it wanting to build my confidence in my knowledge and decision making. This course absolutely provided this!
I thoroughly enjoyed the course I attended. I was impressed by Don’s knowledge of relevant case law and his passion for sharing that knowledge. I would definitely recommend his training to anyone involved in law enforcement, including other prosecutors. With so much on the line, none of us can afford to be uninformed.
…I relied completely on training in that situation. I did not have time to think I just had time to react. I guess what I am trying to say is thank you for your dedication to law enforcement, training I learned from you saved our lives. Have a great day.
Extremely helpful – thank you for the help. Very impressed with the instructor’s knowledge.
I have known Don McCrea for several years. This guy has a passion for teaching! More importantly he knows his material. Considered to be the expert on Use of Force/Search and Seizure in South Dakota. Excellent experience having Don McCrea at our agency!
Don is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate instructors I’ve ever met. Don teaches you what you need to know and in a manner where you’re always engaged and retain the information. I would highly recommend Don’s training to anyone in law enforcement.
Great class, strong material.
…Don has effectively developed a program from the ground up, and currently the system he has developed, I believe, is the gold star standard for law enforcement training in the United States. Don has also developed an advanced training program for both Search and Seizure and Use of Force and civil liability that is beyond compare. It is his passion and knowledge of the subject matter that makes him an instructor in high demand throughout the state. His desire to see individual and agency success has seen the advancement of knowledge statewide and his tireless efforts to provide this training has made him an expert in the field…
Fantastic. Thank you, Sir.
The Search & Seizure Pocket Guide is a great tool for officers.
Learned more from this class than what was taught at Law Enforcement Training. Thank you!
Extremely relevant & can’t have too much exposure to this topic.
Very informative, knowledgeable, and passionate instructor.
Best training course I have attended in years! Content was applicable to what we do in our jobs every day.
Material we should have learned as a rookie put into new light in an understandable, applicable format! In today’s world of policing, understanding this info is a career-saver.
This is a course that should be mandatory for every officer before their first shift on the street. Thank you for your passion about the topics presented.
Once again, Don’s training has exceeded my expectations & has proven to be one of the best, if not THE best, training I have had. This course is something that all law enforcement officers and agencies should have. Don is extremely knowledgeable & presents material in a manner that is easy to understand and apply to the job.
I would and will recommend this training to every officer I meet.
One of the best classes I’ve ever taken. Should be taught in all academies!
The best training I have received that directly applies toward the parameters, limitations, and functions of the job. Highly recommend!
Best class I have had for this material – dispelled many myths that circulate among officers and academy instruction. I wish every cop in the country could get into this class.
One of the best instructors out there. Love your courses.
Don has an incredible wealth of knowledge on the presented topics. He backs his knowledge with experience and accreditations. The course is very easy to grasp and brings great light to the ACTUAL improvements law enforcement needs.
Best training I’ve been to.
This is the most informative and relevant training I have ever attended.
THE Best Training since basic training.
Wonderful course. Instructor was very engaging and knowledgeable. I would recommend and have recommended it to other agencies.
If you wear the badge, you owe it to yourself to attend Don’s class. Without a doubt, one of the best classes I have attended.
It’s not often one finds a training they are willing to take time and write a review. If we do, the training is either really bad or really good, mediocrity in our business never gets a nod, and I am in no way different. As a law enforcement officer for 33 years I have learned to appreciate good training – nothing worse than counting ceiling tiles during a 16 hour course. When I first learned Don was available for 4th amendment training I couldn’t wait to have him instruct my officers and me. Don’s training materials and training style is above anything I have ever attended. No B.S., straight forward, case law backed answers. Now is the time to be trained and UNDERSTAND 4th amendment applications! Don can do that for you – he did it for me and my department.
Most passionate instructor I have ever had!
Don, I’m not sure where to start. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I have learned SO much from you. I am so blessed & thankful to have met you and lucky you were my mentor. There is never enough “Thanks” I can say. I really like how passionate you are in law enforcement. It really makes me excited to do what I want to do, being a deputy. I just hope someday I can be as good as you are! You are an awesome role model. And thank you so much again for everything!
This course should be required for every patrol officer within the first year of employment.
If you want to know the ins and outs of Search and Seizure rules, laws, how to apply, when to apply? Then you need to attend one of Premier Police Trainings classes. Don is extremely knowledgeable of the 4th Amendment and how it pertains to you in Law Enforcement!!!
Makes the tough, high tension interactions involved in LE easier. Officers with knowledge on the 4th Amendment can defuse possibly tense disagreements, protecting their jobs & citizens rights.
I have walked away from this course with an increased confidence in my ability to apply my authority as a law enforcement officer and protecting people’s rights.
Great Training – Thanks
Don’s passion about Search & Seizure makes the course easy to stay focused and engaged. Don is a subject matter expert.
