    What happens to a 20+ year Homicide Detective, who had never displayed any signs of a Mental Illness in his life, who suddenly decides to end his own life?

    *Incarcerated by his own peers
    *Further Suicide attempt, while in his cell
    *72-Court Ordered Commitment
    *Clinically diagnosed with PTSD
    *Adapting, Overcoming
    *ACHIEVING SUCCESS THROUGH CHANGE/STRESS MANAGEMENT.

    Why Me?:
    On June 14, 2017, at approximately 3:51 am, I was found unresponsive, while seated in the driver’s seat of my unmarked FWPD vehicle. The responding Officer knocked on the window of the car until I woke up and rolled the window down. The Officer asked was I okay and what was I doing in that area so late. I told the Officer that was heading to KREAGER PARK, and I was immediately asked by the Officer; “what for?” I informed the Officer that I was heading to the park to kill myself. Did I fail to mention that I was traveling with my loaded .357 Smith & Wesson revolver, which was openly placed on my passenger seat; this was the revolver, I intended to use to end my life.

    Subsequently, I was told to exit the vehicle and soon after and advised to submit to a portable breath test (PBT), which I complied. I was asked if I had been drinking, I responded yes, and that I had a half glass of vodka to accelerate the effects of the painkillers/muscle relaxers I had taken to assist with my death.

    I also stated that I had received a total of four (4) injections from my family doctor (3 for back spasms and 1 for my diabetes) earlier that morning and had also consumed many prescribed muscle relaxers. Furthermore, I had lifted my shirt, to displayed bandages of the four (4) injections (3 for the pain in the back) and one (1) for diabetes, that I had received. Nonetheless, I admitted the consumption of several prescription pills and repletely stated that I wanted to end my life.

    Now, if you ask yourself; if I wanted to die at that time; the answer is a resounding, yes! As I repeatedly told the officers, “I want to die! I want, to kill myself.” I have never thought of taking my life before this incident. However, I was depressed due to discovering information I had received concerning my 18-year-old daughter who suffers from Bipolar and was recently arrested (at my request, to scare her straight); however, I later discovered that she had been the victim of sexual assault (a week prior).

    According to my Clinical Psychologist, the prescribed muscle relaxers that I consumed (BACLOFEN 20 mg) has been known to cause Bipolar reactions including suicidal thoughts.
    At this point and time, I should have been taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, which is FWPD protocol. Instead, the Officers informed FWPD-DISPATCH to cancel the ambulance heading to my location; stating that their assistance, was not needed.

    At the scene, were several Officers, Supervisors (3), a Lieutenant and Deputy Chief. These individuals neglected to secure my mental well-being. Instead, I was arrested and placed under suicide watch in solitary confinement; rather than obtaining me the medical attention needed (these acts ignored, written department policy/protocol).
    Note:

    The FWPD has a Crisis Intervention Team (CIT); of which I was a member of, the Program was implemented to provide an immediate response by trained law enforcement Officers to deal with persons who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

    Former Indiana Governor Mike Pence, signed a law in 2015 requiring the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy to instruct trainees regarding CIT protocol.
    According to the FWPD website: “The goal of the program is to divert persons with a mental illness from incarceration and to treat the mental illness as the priority.”

    According to the FWPD CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM POLICY #PD01-0125: If a misdemeanor crime has been committed by the individual, the mental health detention will occur, and criminal charges will not be filed. Criminal charges of any nature cannot be filed if the person has been held on a 24-hour or 72-hour hold (Obtained from the FWPD Intra-net).
    Situation cont.:

    During my incarceration, I was not allowed to make any phone calls to my family, nor did either agency; the FWPD or the ALLEN COUNTY JAIL (ACJ) did not bother to contact my family to inform them of the events, which had transpired. In fact, my wife was not notified until later that morning, that I had been arrested and would be transported to PARKVIEW BEHAVIORAL HOSPITAL (PBH); where I remained for five (5) days, under a court-ordered involuntary commitment.

    Lingering Questions:

    While housed at PBH under the 72-hour court-ordered hold; the FWPD arrived at my home and removed all my weapons, which were voluntarily relinquished to them by my wife.

    I am stating these facts, merely to point out that if the FWPD went to such great lengths to obtain a 72-hour court-ordered mental hold, and collect all my weapons; then why didn’t I receive adequate and immediate physical and psychiatric care?

    As stated above, this incident took place in June 2017. However, it was in November 2017 when I could read any of the Officers reports, to review the justifications for their actions; however, no matter how it was worded, there can be no valid explanation or rationalize as to why they delayed the care that was desperately needed?
    The Unjustified Conclusion:

    To date, all criminal proceedings are final; there are no more court dates or alcohol classes. Thus, I have satisfied all requirements regarding my sentencing. While I am no longer suspended from the FWPD (30-day suspension), I am on “admirative sick leave.” Because of this incident; I have been clinically diagnosed by Psychiatrists, Psychologists, and Therapists with the following:

    PTSD
    Anxiety
    Paranoia
    Due to the clinical diagnoses, I was removed from Department’s Hostage Negotiation Team

    What Happens Now:

    I know what happened to me, could happen to anyone; yes, that is the question. But more importantly, the lingering question of what happens now is still at the forefront of “mental health” preparedness.

    Whereas I was at the top of “my game” professionally and personally, but this - no my situation (sometimes you must own, what you have earned) had me down so far, that I thought it was impossible to get-back-up; but I overcame.

    I once was angry, withdrawn, and wanted to blame others/the administration for what happened to me; but this ain’t no blame game, it's about lives in need of mental wellness.
    However, time and a team of mental health professionals allowed me the once again see the man God intended me to be.
    The Plan Going-forwarded:

    To work tirelessly to “make my mess my message.” By helping to establish laws or form a platform to the protect/acknowledge the “rights” of those in “in need of psychiatric attention.” Then and only then will “change” have a chance to make a mark in our society. To further educate Law Enforcement and Mental Health Agencies, to form workshops, inspire forms, and engage in speaking groups.

    Why Question:

    Law Enforcement’s inability to safeguard the mental wellbeing of one of their own.

    Career Background:

    As a twenty-plus years Law Enforcement veteran, I have tirelessly sustained the day-to-day operations as an honorable officer, with the Fort Wayne Police Department (FWPD); whereas during those twenty-plus years, I have served my community as a Homicide Detective and Hostage Negotiator, Profiler. In addition, I formally served my country as a Federal Agent with the Department of Homeland Security.

    As a veteran Law Enforcement Officer, I believe that education is the cornerstone of success in any profession. Therefore, I presently hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Psychology, a Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology, and currently, I am a Doctoral Candidate, working towards my Ph.D., in Forensic Psychology. I would be remiss not to mention; I have also served as an adjunct professor.

    Why the Inquiry:

    Because of situations that repletely happen and ultimately violate the rights of citizens that need medical/psychiatric attention. That citizen was me, and the situation surrounding what I believe violated my rights; if it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone. The inquiry is a necessary form of investigating efforts needed to establish a platform; which will serve to protect the rights of all who are marginalized, by the words “in need of psychiatric attention.”

    The attendees will take with them SKILLS used by Hostage/Crisis Negotiators, which have been Converted for personal, business, and everyday use.

    Key Takeaways:

    Minimal Reassurances (Building rapport and encourage individuals to continue talking):

    * Attendees will learn to use sounds especially on the phone, to let one person know the other is there and listening. Such as, “Oh?” “When?” and “Really?”

    * Attendees will learn to utilize these forms of questions, comments, or sounds that do not interfere with the flow of conversation but will let the other individual know that you are there and listening.

  • We talk Cyber Security But: What about Protecting your company’s data, by psychologically evaluating potential Espionage and Spy activity?

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Miscellaneous

    Company’s today should be equipped to safeguard administrative tools for their company to complement its data security effectively. The Board of directors and its administration treat the protection of their data to warrant the risk of a breach of data, and this includes PERSONNEL. MORE >

    In today’s world of CYBER-RISK and CYBER-SECURITY, we sometimes forget about the individuals, or dare I say SUSPECTS behind the BREACH, ATTACH or THEFT. We neglect these individuals until it is too late, and the damage has been done. Individuals such as:

    EDWARD J. SNOWDEN The media hails him as a “whistleblower,” but MR. SNOWDEN stole DATA belonging to the NSA and disseminated said data to individuals with unauthorized access.

    •William Binney (NSA) •Jose Ignacio Lopez (GM) Chief of productions accused of corporate espionage. •Steven Louis Davis (Gillette) Pled guilty to theft of trade secrets.

    •Patricia Dunn (Hewlett-Packard) Involved in a spying scandal.

    •Ross Klein and Amar Lalvani (Starwood Hotels) downloaded confidential Starwood information to use later at Hilton.

    •We talk about protecting data. •We talk about outside forces seeking to obtain our data by unconventional means. •I will speak about PROTECTING or DATA that is stolen from trusted individuals within.

    MY PRESENTATION WILL ENGAGE THE AUDIENCE: We will focus on their psychological motivations, to identify the emotional precursors. Combining open-discussions, media, and PowerPoints, to illustrate, cultural adaptation, borderline personality disorder, mental autopsy, precursors to ESPIONAGE, and SPYING.

    The presentation will give participants innovative insights to conduct psychological field profile/assessments and verify potential risk factors. This presentation will outline the mental aspects regarding a Data Breaching and possible prevention Data Loss.

    Furthermore, this presentation will demonstrate that with the proper preparation, one can evaluate an individual whose psychological profile dictates that they retain the potential to perform CORPORATE ESPIONAGE.

    One of the most severe threats facing our Businesses and Corporations is the threat of a DATA BREACH. Regardless of the motivation, nature of their associated tactics, techniques, and procedures; the breach in DATA pose a stiff challenge to the existence of your organizations future.

    The persistent nature of this threat and the expectation that it will continue to rank as the most likely scenario; Board executives and administrators will need to contend with soon. The goal of my presentation is to inform Executives/Administrators key signs to help reduce/prevent DATA loss using corporate espionage and theft.

    My workshop will contain two main sections: • The first section will discuss the PSYCHOLOGY of spy/thief, • The second section will deal with the process of identifying individuals who seek to harm the company.

    The first section will cover a brief history of CORPORATE ESPIONAGE and incidents involving same.

    The psychological concepts behind DATA BREACHES (within) and CORPORATE will be discussed thoroughly.

    For this segment, I will be utilizing role-playing scenarios to introduce to the PARTICIPANTS how “everyday people skills” can be used to conduct a Criminal/Psychological profile to aid in determining potential corporate spies/thieves.

    As stated earlier:

    That said, executives should safeguard administrative tools for their company to complement its data security effectively. The Board of directors and its administration treat the protection of their data to warrant the risk of a breach of data, and this includes PERSONNEL.

    In today’s world of CYBER-RISK and CYBER-SECURITY, we sometimes forget about the individuals, or dare I say SUSPECTS behind the BREACH, ATTACH or THEFT. We neglect these individuals until it is too late, and the damage has been done. Individuals such as:

    EDWARD J. SNOWDEN The media hails him as a “whistleblower,” but MR. SNOWDEN stole DATA belonging to the NSA and disseminated said data to individuals with unauthorized access.

    •William Binney (NSA) •Jose Ignacio Lopez (GM) Chief of productions accused of corporate espionage. •Steven Louis Davis (Gillette) Pled guilty to theft of trade secrets.

    •Patricia Dunn (Hewlett-Packard) Involved in a spying scandal.

    •Ross Klein and Amar Lalvani (Starwood Hotels) downloaded confidential Starwood information to use later at Hilton.

    This second section will focus more on people reading skills and identifying micro-expressions. This segment of the workshop will help the PARTICIPANTS identify the traits, behaviors, and body language of individuals.

    The conclusion at the end the second section will consist of a hands-on practice session: I will ask PARTICIPANTS to apply what they have learned by identifying potential RISKS by profiling random social media accounts of individual, based on photographs, social media postings, likes, friends, and so forth.

    • Note: not only have past participants found this method fun, but they have also found it to be reliable and proven reliable. I utilize this method throughout my profiles of gang members, narcotics traffickers, white-collar criminals and more.

    The protection of a company’s data is not just an issue for the IT department. Data security is a crucial element of a corporation’s security mainframe, necessitating executive surveillance. The breach of data has immediate licit consequences, which executives must comprehend.

    The topic of data security must be addressed in every board meeting and said boards should be equipped with the tools to obtain proficiency, which will allow them to encounter with matters surrounding data security.

    MY PRESENTATION WILL ENGAGE THE AUDIENCE: Therefore, for this workshop, we will combine open-discussions, media, and PowerPoints, to illustrate, cultural adaptation, borderline personality disorder, psychological autopsy, precursors to ESPIONAGE, and SPYING.

    The presentation is fun, excite, informative and addictive.

    Further, the presentation is lengthy (but not dry nor ever dull), it averages about 1.5 hours. However, it can be condensed to approximately 45 minutes. What I would do (and this involves summarizing all my lectures/presentations) is to reduce my open discussions (Q&A from the audience) and limit my role-playing scenarios.

    However, the role-play segment gets the attendees involved and some even attempt to test their new-found aptitudes soon after. For example, some would attempt to use said skills while at dinner, lounge, and so forth. However, it can be reduced to one or two “mock-type scenarios.”

    This segment is vital because it proves sound regarding the utilization of one’s everyday skills to psychologically profile.

    I have used this method in the past regarding COLD HOMICIDE CASES, PREPARATIONS before INTERVIEWING SUSPECTS and PROFILING current cases.

    This lecture/presentation will conform to discussions regarding cyber-attacks/incidents and will entail the psychological unmasking of individuals behind the attacks.

    For example; a car thief would look at the vulnerability of the anti-theft system protecting a vehicle. However, how does that thief know what weaknesses to look for, the same goes for

    The necessity for societal psychosomatic tactics is also suggested by the fact that significant cybersecurity episodes from motivations as wide-ranging as monetary profit and radical/philosophical dissent. These are frequently initiated by cliques, as opposed to a single person acting by him/herself.

    My goal is to offer attendees additional preventive measures by exposing abilities they have within, the purpose of this segment is to make individuals aware of influences that they have, using one’s observational skills to detect the behavior of potential attackers.

    Key takeaways from the:

    Performing assessments on a psychological and cybersecurity platform

    Enhanced abilities to evaluate security efficiency within his/her organizational structure

    Authentic mock scenarios regarding attack vectors and how to respond or set up a novel response system in response to same (this method is formatted to my active shooter drill, it pertains to the aftermath and the preparation to make a quick recovery and training for the aftershock).

  • Workplace Safety: The Deterrence of Workplace Violence

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Miscellaneous

    Dallas, Texas. A 60-year-old man entered his place of work, drew a firearm, and shot his manager to death. The unwilling recipient had just recently been married was the mother of 7 children. The offender did not have a criminal past, and there was not a sign that he intended to execute a crime or developed any problems with his manager. Moreover, this demonstrates just how problematic it is to forecast a violent workplace episode. An elder gentleman with no apparent disputes with his manager does not appear expected to be a shooter. To justly safeguard ourselves and our employees, we must stay attentive and organized to take safety measures against acts of violence in the workplace. MORE >

    We talk about safety regulations and safety compliance yet, in today’s society, with the rising numbers of mass attacks regarding Active Shooters; we sometimes overlook the fact that our employees may also need to be safeguarded from the human aspect of harm.

    This presentation will outline agendas that can be tailored to each company. Not all industries need every component, but then again, a model program enhancement method contains mutual fundamentals.

    The presentation will discuss and provide cost-effective tuitions for fostering a prevention package:

    •Creating a policymaking panel.
    •Surveying current conditions.
    •Resolving and executing guidelines.
    •Setting up a private data gathering and assessment base (reporting potential risks)
    •Develop an education program.
    •Reexamining pre-employment assessment methods.
    •Reviewing layoff and termination methods.
    •Setting up a crisis response strategy (schools have active shooter drills, and so should the workplace)
    •Testing and enhancing the program on a proceeding with a premise.
    •Implementing a highly productive employee assistance program (EAP)

    This checklist could make creating a program appear overwhelming.

    However, THIS PRESENTATION will eustatically display the many corporations have several factors in an efficient system currently in place. Such as access control, safety measures and property safeguard packages, sexual harassment guidelines, minimum specifications of conduct and employee assistance programs.

    •Psychological profiling, using everyday interpersonal skills
    The presentation, by use of role-playing scenarios, will use realistic appropriateness, which for attendees to utilize using ordinary people skills.

    Provide socio-psychological characteristics of the individual, to assist in identifying the psychological makeup. For example, comments a disgruntled employee would make to a co-worker or a disturbing post on social media outlets. These are all indicators associated with "Risk Factors."

    The topics discussed in my presentation will exhibit significant outlines that will motivate individuals to participate with enthusiasm; this innovated method is aimed at captivating, diverse consortiums while incorporating various points of the Crisis Intervention model.

    Most profilers are not psychologists and unlike TV, have a law enforcement background. Therefore, the attendees will learn to utilize your everyday people skills to outline a risk assessment.

    •Workplace Violence Financial Data:
    The presentation will discuss financial impacts on companies as a result of workplace violence

    -$121 billion annual losses are attributed to workplace assaults
    - Lawsuits associated with workplace violence cost companies an average of $500,000 for out-
    of-court settlements.

    10 Takeaways

    1. What is workplace violence? Certain elements describe violence in the workplace. They include harassment, physical assault, verbal abuse, and threatening conduct. There is a growing recognition that every form of workplace violence implies an attack on an individual’s dignity and is likely to create a risk to their safety and health.

    2. For certain occupations, violence is among the leading causes of death among employees. In keeping with Injury Facts 2016, violence is the third leading cause of the death of healthcare employees in addition to workers in business and professional services like law, media, and education.

    3. It is essential to implement prevention strategies that deal with workplace violence. These strategies can include redesigning workspace to avert entrapment. The access to employees’ work areas should be controlled. Also, good lighting outdoors and indoors needs to be maintained.

    4. Disgruntled employees can stir up workplace violence to extremes such as murder.
    Anger, combined with paranoia and depression, leads to some form of explosion, which highlights this kind of workplace violence. Even though murder cases are rare, unfortunate incidences related to discontented workers occur.

    5. Training and preparation should be accessible to all employees to manage work-related violence. Providing insight and training to employees is essential in recognizing and preventing workplace violence. Many employees consider instruction in the management of work-related disorder as necessary for their official function.

    6. Responding to violent incidents is fundamental in mitigating workplace aggression.
    Various measures can be implemented to respond to violent incidents. They include isolating or securing the work area, medical attention should be sought for victims, and the issue should be reported to the supervisor.

    7. It is highly significant to know the warning signs of workplace violence.
    Several people engage in violence due to robbery, ideology, or revenge.
