I have to say I have had Scot as an instructor for many years about 15...  and myself and others are very happy he is still doing training after his retirement from Portland PD.  He is one of the best instructors in law enforcement in the state by far.  Let him know how much the guys and I appreciate the classes he now puts on through his company.  They are much needed and he does an excellent job picking instructors as well.

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 trainings 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 effecticve and safe while doing our jobs. It is most appreciated. Pleast take care and be safe.

"This training is a MUST for all law enforcement officers and attorneys handling impaired driving cases.  Scot Mattox and his team from Dirigo Safety and Tactical Services were personable and the information and mixed lab experience they provide is invaluable.  Attendees get a hands on experience with marijuana and alcohol impaired volunteers proving the knowledge and confidence to effectively detect the signs and symptoms of impairment and successfully try a criminal case.  Massachusetts legalized recreational marijuana in 2016 and we initially started with three mixed lab trainings for prosecutors.  I have three more mixed labs schedule in 2019 for law enforcement officials."
