    I am not sure where you are going with this. The site does not use any personnel information for any solicitation and I do not share it with any other entity.

    Perhaps some history of the site would help. I originally created the site in 2008 to provide Florida Legal training to the deputies assigned to me. It allowed me to cover a wide range of topics and the deputies could access the information from their laptops. When they called with questions, I would often say, "go read the site." I had so many requests for access, that I starting allowing law enforcement officers from across my county to use it.

    The site later expanded to Spanish training to help my own agency and a short time later I made it available to agencies across the United States. I routinely receive emails from agencies thanking me for the Spanish course and over 2000 people have taken it.

    As for the course mentioned in this thread, I am considered an expert in counterfeit IDs and foreign documents (in particular those from Mexico). I used to travel around teaching about this topic to make some extra money. I created a web version of the training for my own agency because it was easier than trying to conduct live sessions for over 1000 sworn. We routinely make arrests for possession of counterfeit immigration documents and foreign driver licenses and the number of arrests has increased due to the online course.

    When the economy crashed and other agencies' training budgets dried up, I decided to do my part to help out. I started giving free access to verified law enforcement officers. I have to ask for the information in order to verify their identity. If they send the information via a secure agency server, this makes the job much easier.

    Well, that was the history lesson. If you are paranoid that the corporate machine has created the training site just to obtain your precious work email address (which is public information in my state), then by all means stay away.

    Thanks for this course, the information in it was great. And it has already proven itself usefull to my agency. I'd also like to add that the information was presented in a way that made each minute of the videos interesting. I don't think I've enjoyed any other on-line training as much as this throughout my career. Again, great job.

    If you sent a verification request for access to the course within the last week, I am just getting to those today. I was out of the country and just got back.

    I am glad that you found it useful. I used to travel around and teach this course before converting it into an online format. In these tough economic times most agencies have severely cut their training budgets so I decided to make this course free to help my fellow LEO's out there.

    In my jurisdiction we routinely make arrests for possession of counterfeit immigration documents and Mexican driver licenses. This year I have been focusing more on the counterfeiting rings themselves and I have already arrested three counterfeiters in the past few months. They were all making about $500+ a day manufacturing and selling identifications to undocumented immigrants.
