I get asked a lot of questions about Private Investigations techniques, tools, training - and even interesting stories! I also get asked questions about my C.L.E.E.T. Certified Training. It is my hope that this blog will instruct you in topics relating to the field of private investigation. It is also my hope that the topics and content you find here will help you navigate some of today's safety issues.

Black/White Robbery Division

When I was in the robbery division at the Oklahoma City Police Department, the investigators in that unit were divided into two different groups. One group of investigators investigated what was term White suspects, which included Whites, Mexicans and Asians. The second group of investigators were assigned to investigating Black suspects. At that time we had approximately 2 to 3 more investigators working Black suspects as to the number of investigators working White suspects.

This had nothing to do with racism. It was simple factual workload division. There were substantially more robberies committed by black suspects at that time than there were by the other racial groups. It also improved the police department’s ability to solve robberies because investigators became familiar with population of suspects either Black or White, who are known to commit robberies. Investigators became familiar with the modus operandi of individual robbery suspects and people they associated with. This was nothing more than an intelligent way to investigate robberies.

When I hear the overbroad use of factual clichés on how the criminal justice system somehow is targeting blacks, I personally know they are skewing the information to fit their agenda. It seems to me the Ivy League educated politicians have no concept of what the reality of law enforcement is. As I discovered in my undergraduate work, I had professors teaching from a purely book knowledge position. Those professors had never spent any time in law enforcement. After I graduated and became a police officer, I found out how full of misinformation these professors were teaching. I did find it refreshing when I got into my Master’s program a significant number of the professors were currently in law enforcement or had spent many years in law enforcement.

I make this challenge, and certainly offer my services to teach to the Ivy League schools who are educating the next batch of misinformed young adults. I will be glad to come to your school and help educate the undergraduate or graduate population on the reality of law enforcement.
