What People Are Saying

Chief Christian Bailey

Public Safety Director, Hampden Police Department

“We joined Dirigo Safety in late 2019 for their SOP Development Services. The timing could not have been better as we moved into 2020. They have organized our policy and procedures into a clean and more professional format. One of the most important pieces of their service was to cross reference all the MCJA Board of Trustee Standards and MLEAP standards. This will make our goal to become accredited so much easier! We highly recommend Dirigo Safety for this service.”

Chief Michael Field

Bath Police Department

“As police leaders we are all aware that developing sound, clear and concise policies are our core liability protection. These policies ensure our officers lawfully, effectively and ethically carry out their law enforcement duties. Clear and well-drafted policies are essential to assuring constitutional police practices.

The policy development services from Dirigo Safety have been invaluable in modernizing and verhauling our standard operating procedures. They have provided us with the “best practices standards” to address the most critical law enforcement issues. Retired Chief of Police Shawn O’Leary, in addition to being very accessible, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the program. The custom policy templates are tailored to our agency’s needs and have been specifically crafted to meet MLEAP standards. This has given us a crucial head start on the accreditation process.”

“Dear Scot, I just wanted to thank you for hosting us last week for the “Initial Patrol Response to Major Crimes and Homicides” Class. The class was very informative and the instructors were passionate about the subject matter. I know that officers from our agency have attended other training that you have presented and the feedback has been very positive.
Enclosed, you will find one of our patches for you to add to your collection. Please consider it a small token of our appreciation. Thank you for sharing your time and expertise to help members of our public safety community become more effective and safe while doing our jobs. It is most appreciated. Please take care and be safe.”

“Today I attended a training put on by Dirigo Safety regarding Effective Writing of Search Warrants and I would highly recommend it. Obviously there was been a big uptick in cases regarding search warrants due to in depth investigations and great interdiction work. For anyone looking to get more comfortable writing warrants and what goes into them I suggest you look into this class, by the end of the day you end up writing 4 different warrants and they do a great job breaking it down section by section.

One of the better trainings I’ve been to where you dont just get talked at the whole day and get to really learn by doing. Just wanted to pass it along.”

“Scot, Just wanted to say thank you for putting on the OUI investigation class. As a cop, sometimes I feel like we lose perspective on how low of a threshold RAS and PC is for investigation/arrest, especially when it comes to OUI cases which certainly seem to take a large amount of preparation, investigative skills and observations. I contend that OUIs are one of the most investigative exhausting cases to look at, for no other reason that it taxes all of the officers skills in a short period of time; from initial contact, to effective interviewing, to active observation skills and the need for an immediate arrest decision. Rest assured, this class (especially the portions you put on, as well as the District Attorney and DMV examiner) is one I’ll recommend to my co-workers and other officers I have contact with.”

“Our organization recently came onboard to Dirigo Safety after using another program for many years. While the system is user friendly and intuitive, as new customers to the platform, we have needed occasional assistance from the team in navigating the program and finding certain materials. Throughout this process, Meaghan O’Leary has been an absolute pleasure to work with and has demonstrated that she is someone who can be relied upon. She, and the rest of the team at Dirigo Safety, are very knowledgeable, professional and display a great deal of attention to our needs to ensure our success.”
