“Citizen’s expectations of law enforcement will always be high and trust must be maintained.   I see The Moral Compass serving as a timely guide and a constant reminder for every Law Enforcement Officer.   Great law enforcement professionals have always used the ideas presented in this book …   but it took Normore, Javidi, Anderson, Normand, Scott, and Hoina to compose them and provide these solid guidelines for all those who serve the public trust.”

Major Troy E. Butler, Director of Training, North Carolina State Highway Patrol

“Moral Compass for Law Enforcement Professionals dives into the concepts of what separates good leaders from great ones; character.  It addresses the key principles and practices of great leadership, encourages role modeling and self-reflection through reassuring the enabling of values and virtues described within.  This handbook is a great guide for those men and women in law enforcement who desire successful personal and professional development.”

Dr. Timothy W. Turner, EdD, MSCJ, Professor, Anderson and Columbia Southern Universities, FBI (Ret.)

“This unique resource is essential for law enforcement professionals.  The authors have condensed the fundamental core values of ethics, character and moral judgment into a must read book for those committed to the profession of public safety.”

Ward Clapham, Superintendent, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (Ret.)

“Law enforcement has always depended on trusting relationships among officers, leaders, agencies, and the public.  The authors ably describe, a police leader must earn trust through a moral and ethical commitment. Effective policing requires that your colleagues know that you will maintain the highest standards of conduct in all situations, regardless of difficulties or consequences. I recommend their work to every police leader, in other words to every police professional.”

Dr. John Morgan, Former Director, Office of Science and Technology in the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice

“This Moral Compass reminds us that as leaders in the community we will be faced with critically important opportunities to lead.   The ability to succeed when the opportunity arises will be based in choosing the right path.   The right path must be equally instinctive by the individual and expected of the agency’s they serve. The existence of both is an absolute right for those who we protect.”

Charles Payne, Founder and President of Primoris International; Former Homeland Security Bombing Prevention Chief
