Instructor Bios:

Larry Moser
Larry Moser acquired vast knowledge of the challenges faced by street officers and supervisors across the country from himself serving as an Officer, Detective, Trainer, Supervisor, Division and Bureau Commander since 1982.  His assignments provided him an opportunity to travel throughout the United States, thereby learning directly from officers and agencies of various sizes and capabilities.    After spending the majority of his career training police officers, he earned a valued reputation regarding officer safety and street survival that resulted in his being selected to brief the Honorable Janet Reno (former United States Attorney General) as she prepared to argue before the Supreme Court in the case of Maryland v. Wilson.   This landmark case gave police officers bright-line authority to control the movement of vehicle passengers, greatly enhancing officer safety.  His training accomplishments have received recognition by garnering the Greater Washington, DC area Trainer of the Year award.  Additionally, Larry served on the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Service Training Oversight Board and testified as an expert witness on police training, with a 100% success rate.  Larry retired in August 2010, as a Major from the Fairfax County Police Department.  Client Police Departments:   Las Vegas NV, Detroit IL, Maui & Honolulu HI, Albuquerque NM, VA Beach VA, Montana State MT, Denver CO, Bryan TX, Tucson AZ, Hagerstown MD, Nashville TN, Gettysburg College, Norfolk VA, Chesapeake VA, Fredericksburg VA.
