Law enforcement officers who have attended this training share their stories.
“At the recent Law Enforcement Administrative Professionals I attended, Bill Bongle gave a presentation about the Police and Viral Media: Adapting to New Challenges. He delivered a strong and timely message, and we all walked away with new ways to engage the public in positive and powerful ways. He also reminded us of those many things our officers are doing on a daily basis that impact lives in meaningful ways, and he gave us ideas on how to shine the positive light on these fine efforts.”

“My agency hired Bill to conduct his Community Policing and Problem Solving class for our entire department in spring 2010. During the planning process, he made quite an effort to learn about our agency, our community, and our state and then he tailored the course to fit our needs. I found him to be highly knowledgeable and experienced but also extremely personable. Since then, he has continued to be a resource for us and has remained interested in how our transition to community policing is going. I give him my highest recommendation.”
