"Thank you Karl!  I thoroughly enjoyed your advanced SWAT course and learned the complexity of dealing with executive protection.  You have opened my eyes in this field of police work that I have not seen in my 32+ years of service.  The depth that you took the class was excellent and your team building skills showed me a new direction with my team.  I look forward to working with you again."

Captain Tim H.

Georgia Law Enforcement Officer

SWAT Team Commander​


​"The KDI Riot & Crowd Control course was exactly what I needed as a new Team Commander to better prepare me for the challenges of managing a Mobile Field Force in today's uncertain environment.  The built in Train-the-Trainer concept taught just about every aspect of crowd control from the planning phase to intelligence gathering and operations.  The section on networking with other agencies was invaluable!  I am confident that with the information I obtained in this week's training that I am knowledgeable to brief my command staff and build a professional and effective Mobile Field Force team.  Thank you!"

Detective Scott V.

Georgia Law Enforcement Officer

"Being in law enforcement for over a decade and being fortunate enough to go to many military and law enforcement courses, I am able to provide class critique that is of benefit to others who are wanting to take similar classes or are in similar field.  PRior to taking KDI's week long Executive Protection course, my mindset of executive protection was very narrow and limited to only what I saw from the immediate law enforcement side of doing the tedious ground work and supporting the "camera angle" guys who got all the limelight.  But after taking KDI's class, it really reaffirmed that this was truly teamwork.  No one person or element made the difference between mission failure or mission success. We learned that you succeed or fail as one!  In this course Karl and the entire KDI team bring you as close to the real thing as one can possibly imagine.  They don't just test your physical and mental abilities, they test your psychological fortitude and your willingness to see the mission through.  KDI is a company set on making you a VIP protection professional and they have the means and resources to provide you with valuable contacts and assets that will benefit you and your agency for years to come.  They have given me a new perspective to approach my daily work, whether patrol, investigations or tactical."

"Your class on airport operations and maneuvering through airports not only made for a very successful operation, but it has truly separated me from my peers!  The final product is elegance and competence.  In addition, the tools you showed us have been very useful!"
