“Chris is a “gifted” speaker who communicates his message better than anyone I have ever seen and turned a very real topic into a semi comedy show.” – J. D. Executive Director, Public Relations

“What an entertaining hour spent, the activeshooter [sic] presentation was almost worth the price the whole three-days of the seminar. Thank you for seeking out this speaker. Next year, I respectfully request to have him back!” – D. S.  Director of Risk Management 

“The speaker who provided the speech on; “Security Through Environmental Design,” [sic] the bald one, yea [sic] , have him back or we won’t be back! What a great show! I forgot it was a security conference and the gaming machines left my mind. This was one of the most entertaining and informative seminars I’ve ever attended” – VP, Global Affairs

“Chris Grollnek has done an outstanding in providing clients the tools needed during these highly dynamic events.  As a retired police officer, SWAT commander and law enforcement trainer in all levels of force, firearms, defensive tactics, etc.” – J. F.

I am part of the Executive Staff here in the Dallas Division and I was sitting front and center at your 9:30 presentation this morning.  Thank you so very much for taking time out of your day to educate our DEA employees.  I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and we all learned a lot. I’ve been a prosecutor for 31 years now.  I paid my way through graduate school by working for the City of Irving police department and Municipal Court and I paid my way through law school at Texas Tech by working midnights at the Lubbock Police Department.  I was married to a homicide detective for 10 years, my daughter is a Lubbock Police Officer, my sister works for the FBI and my brother-in-law is a retired SWAT guy from the Garland Police Department.  I’ve taught for years at various police and sheriff’s office academies, rape crisis centers, Texas District and County Attorney Association trainings (for state/county prosecutors), National Advocacy Center training center (for federal prosecutors) and I was a professor for years in the Criminal Justice Program at Wayland Baptist University teaching Criminology, Crime Scene Investigations and Murder:  An Analytical Study.  I also served as the Chief of Staff for the last two Administrators of DEA at our Headquarters in the Washington D.C. area.  Suffice it to say, law enforcement and the people dedicated to that profession are my life!  You, my friend, represent our profession so very well.  Not only showing passion and compassion for us but for the communities we serve.  Thank you.
