Our founder, Dave Glick, has been working effectively with law enforcement and public safety professionals for the past 27 years. Since 2006, Dave has been a DEA Area Clinician, and as of 2010, an FBI on call clinician. Dave’s journey into police work started in graduate school where he studied under Dr. Edwin Delattre, the author of Character and Cops; furthermore, his research centered around police suicide statistics.
Since the passing of the Federal Crime Bill in 1994, Dave has conducted extensive work with police departments in the state of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Some of Dave’s accomplishments include coordinating a workplace threat assessment response protocol for Bell South in their nine state region from 2000-2003. He is a certified Subject Matter Expert by the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council and the Office of National Drug Control Policy/High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA). In 2008, at HIDTA, his original class entitled Advanced Psychology for Cops was and still is considered a significant innovation in the area of police training.
In 2011, Dave was commissioned by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police to present at their annual conference. The training he provided, entitled Battlefield to Badge, addressed the various needs of civilian police returning from tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In his role at the DEA, Dave is a combined clinician, trainer, and consultant. The DEA has formally recognized the quality of his work and awarded him three separate times. The feedback received from the DEA and other police leaders is indicative of Dave’s keen ability to build rapport and credibility within police organizations, despite there being a mistrust of mental health professionals and other outsiders.
