Wish I could rate higher!
I had the pleasure to go through advanced search and seizure. I learned so much from just a single 8 hour course. This free podcast should be in every LEO favorite podcast!
Excellent Law Facilitator
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Barnard as a Constitutional Law instructor while at FLETC. Mr. Barnard excels at breaking down complicated case law into terms that a field officer can easily remember. He has an extraordinary ability to captivate the audiences attention and hold it during some of the driest material. I will never forget his “Fishing story”. Ha! Great instructor with a mastery of complex law.
Mr. Barnard is able to explain complex legal issues in a manner that everyone can understand and enjoy. It is important to understand and stay up to date with case law that might one day apply to you. This podcast is able to do just that in an enjoyable manner and the video's help to break it down even more.
If you have 30 minutes to an hour and are an aspiring LEO, current LEO, law student or just someone interested in law enforcement and judicial proceedings, Broadcast Blue is well worth a listen.
Thank you for putting this out, Mr. Barnard, I am looking forward to your future podcasts.
