Jim Glennon the owner of Calibre Press, a preeminent Law Enforcement Training Company as well as a retired Police Commander is our guest today. The third generation in a family of law enforcement officers, Jim began his career with the Lombard, IL Police Department in 1980. Holding positions from patrol officer to Lieutenant, he was selected as the first Commander of Investigations for the newly formed DuPage County Major Crimes (Homicide) Task Force in 1998. Lt. Glennon has a BA in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Police Management. Teaching various courses for both law enforcement and private industry, Jim specializes in three fields: Officer Safety (The Street Survival Seminar), Communication (Arresting Communication & The Warrior’s Edge), and Leadership (Finding the Leader in You).
