Hi, I am a retired Canadian police officer having spent the last 20 + years as a firearms/use of force/officer safety instructor.  I retired in 2004 switching to a full time callout with the Canadian Forces as a Combat Engineer, currently completing my fourth and final tour in Afghanistan.  Even though I retired, I've continued to follow firearms training in both the police and the civilian sectors...techniques, safety, and the upgrading of various products and gadgets.  As a police firearms instructor, I was the tech advisor in Ontario, 1993, during the selection process for a replacement to the police revolver after the then NDP government lost a significant workplace safety complaint instigated by the Ontario Provincial Police.  The process took us through firearm selection, ammunition, equipment and training protocols afterwhich all were entrenched in Provincial law.  I participated in train-the-trainer certification courses provided by S&W, GLOCK, Beretta, SIG Sauer, and Remington...all of which were awesome.  Taking that back to my police service and later the Ontario Police College, I found myself being called upon more for court as a SME.  I've looked around at various groups and it wasn't until I looked through LawOfficer Connect that I found what I was looking for.  Looking forward to great conversations and an opporunity to continue learning.  All the best, stay safe.

Just joined up. Was a Marksmanship Instructor in Marine Corps for 13 years. Retired from Federal Bureau of Prisons in January 2014, was a Firearms instructor for 9 years and taught Armed Escort for staff. Looking forward to the discussions on here. Anyone know of any opportunities for weapons instructors in Arizona or New Mexico? Thanks.
