Your Working Dog Radio hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with founder and CEO of Street Cop Training, Dennis Benigno.
The gents get into Benigno’s history (seriously, the guy has multiple awards including but not limited to Lifesaving, Meritorious Service, Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Public Service, Several Letters of Recognition, Leadership awards, and Certificates of Appreciation from several law enforcement organizations) as well as the how & why Street Cop Training got started.
They also hit on several other important topics/rants:
-Eric’s favorite: how Administration making decisions are often out of touch
-Ted’s favorite: case law
-Everyone’s favorite: moose knuckles
Benigno first got into law enforcement at the age of 19 as a NJ Corrections Officer. Three years later, Benigno became a police officer with the US Park Police Dept. in Washington, DC, and in 2005 moved over to the position of a police officer in one of NJ’s largest municipalities. As a police officer, Benigno has affected over 1,500 arrests and has conducted well over 10,000 motor vehicle stops.
In 2012, Benigno founded Street Cop Training and began formal police instruction for actual police tactics that work and save lives; their top priority is to not die, and save lives. It is now one of the fastest-growing LEO education companies in the country, and partners with several non-profits and works to provide no-cost support to several families and members of the law enforcement community.
