On today’s show, I speak with Dennis Benigno, who is the founder and CEO of Street Cop Training.
His law enforcement career began in 2001 at 19 years of age as an NJ Corrections Officer. In 2004, 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. He has received 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.
He now leads one of the fastest growing LEO education companies in the country. Dennis is recognized as not only an instructor but as a thought leader and influencer in modern day policing. His outspoken vision of changing law enforcement for the better has struck the hearts of over 150,000 followers on social media platforms alone. He has now partnered with several non-profits and works to provide no cost support to several families.
Dennis is also the host of the wildly popular Street Cop Podcast.
