Brothers & Sisters,

Please see the below information from Colonel Tim Gillette (Ret.) from the Broward Sheriff’s Office in Florida who contacted the Lodge and is planning to rent the hall for the training classes described below. The course will be presented for Sgt and Lt. candidates as part of a 2 day work shop on January 11-12 and Feb 9-10, 2022. Any and all questions should be directed to Col. Gillette (Ret.) as listed below. This training is not sponsored by the Lodge and additional info can be found below:

” As part of my on-going commitment to help police personnel excel in their promotional processes and become successful leaders in their organizations, I am offering a 16-hour training workshop entitled, “Succeeding in the Police Assessment Center.”  You can take this program in person at your local FOP 89 Hall or through my audio-tape training module program. You can also receive private coaching through my “Personal Coaching and Development” program.  To register for any of these programs, please visit my website at and click on the Products link.

To provide you some insight  into my training programs and coaching methods, I have created a new tactical “Officer Down” training video which I believe will provide much value to police officers and supervisors throughout their careers. The video can be viewed on YouTube at:

Upon viewing the video, please click on the “Thumbs up/down,”  “Share,” and “Subscribe” icons at the bottom of the video page. The Subscribe icon will enable you to receive additional free training resources from me in the future.
