Additionally, pro-bono, DRS consults on local government tax issues related to law enforcement, public safety, and other local governmental transparency and taxpayer issues.

Sgt. Jeff Church (retired) is perhaps the most knowledgeable expert on Law Enforcement Recruiting issues in the United States and has teamed with other experts to get you the best and diverse candidates at the lowest cost. Consultation is free and many agencies are unknowingly opening themselves to liability with their recruiting practices.

Since his retirement in 2003, he has devoted himself to learning about the issue world-wide. He has attended and taught at numerous seminars on law enforcement recruiting and retention. He has also conducted extensive research on the subject of law enforcement recruiting.

In addition to his own experience Jeff has compiled the input and advice from hundreds of recruiters and H.R. personnel. He has assembled other expert instructors in the areas of recruiting, sales and marketing, to bring all aspects of the big picture to seminar attendees.

While his specialization is law enforcement, the concepts generally apply as well to all aspects of governmental recruiting including teachers, firefighters, and other service positions.

Seminars cover all aspects of recruiting:

  • Your recruiting plan
  • Designing a website
  • How to get free or reduced advertising
  • Recruiting from the military
  • Diversity recruiting
  • Salesmanship and marketing
  • Legal issues

Managing And Making Money From Special Events

Outdoor event

After public safety, quality of life issues are essential to the well-being of a state or local government. Special events put on by an agency represent the local government. Putting on a special event is no easy process, making it profitable and effective even more so. One bad incident can permanently destroy a government’s reputation.

Crime, gangs, terrorism, liability, traffic incidents, weather, accidents, bad promoters and many other bad things can happen to good people trying to put on a special event. Don’t let it happen to you.

The City of Reno and the area are known world-wide for our special events from cook-offs, Hot August Nights, Burning Man, various festivals, etc. As one of Jeff’s assignments, he was proud to be the Special Events Sergeant for the Reno Police Department. Take advantage of his expertise and training and start with a free consultation on how your city, county or other entity can profit from a successful special event.

Do these unfortunate events sound familiar? Could they have been avoided with proper planning?
