Hi, I’m Greg Seidel. In 2009, I left my 28 year career in law enforcement to begin work as Training Director for Thomas & Means. I work out of Virginia, where I retired as a police captain. I have commanded investigative and patrol divisions, as well as professional standards and training. I am a graduate of the FBI National Academy and I have provided much law enforcement training, from ethical to tactical, to federal, state and local agencies throughout the country. This as context, I tell you now that my proudest training involvement is with Thomas & Means. I have been attending its training programs as a participant for more than twenty years. I can personally attest to its quality.

I also serve as the Director of P.A.T.S., The Police Authority Training System – training on the federal constitutional principles - arrest and detention, search and seizure, interview and interrogation -that govern day to day police work, the principles that can and do cause criminal cases and civil lawsuits to be won and lost. These activities are at the core of everyday police work. They must be done right.
