From the Originator:
I have been a street cop in 1987, to becoming a Cop Doc, Uniform Psychologist at the rank of [Det. Sgt] for the NYPD, DEA EAP, HRA PD, Amtrack PD I have accumulated much experience. My own 'job related experience' doing preliminary investigations of robberies, assaults to homicide and a few hundred arrests helped me connect with many public safety officers and family members. Assessment, intervention and treatment using my Eco-Ethological Existential Analysis is key to service to Public Safety.
