More Guest Info:
Brett began his life of serving and protecting in 1989 when he enlisted in the United States Air Force. After an honorable discharge, he hired on with the Denver Police Department in 1993.
After six years as a patrol officer, Brett was assigned to the Department’s full-time METRO SWAT/K9 Unit in 1999 until his retirement in 2019.
He has deployed and participated in over 2800 high-risk tactical operations with several hundred of those ending in critical life and death incidents. As the creator of an internationally recognized SWAT/K9 training program, Brett has trained and provided lectures to over 8000 Police, SWAT and K9 officers around the country. He has also shared his life experiences with several thousand citizens to better educate them on becoming safer and more prepared for a crisis event.
Quotes from the show:
“Paws before boots.”
“The threat is measured in seconds, the response is measured in minutes.”
“Who wouldn’t want a free tool to save lives?”
Brett’s police K9 partners:
