San Jose, CA:
I want to thank you for the great Undercover Chat class you provided during the week of February 18-22, 2013. It had been several years since our ICAC has been involved in chat cases. Most of our recent emphasis has been peer to peer file sharing. But, I decided to switch gears a bit after attending your class at the Crimes Against Children Conference in Dallas. It was a great 4 hour presentation and we were excited to get the opportunity to learn more about chat. You were very receptive to my request for a class in the SF Bay Area. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to train detectives from the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Your class was an excellent way to establish a foundation for chat cases on all platforms.
On Wednesday*, during our first day of “hands on” chatting, one of the detectives using the fundamentals that you taught ended up arresting a suspect who confessed to a prior molest of his 10 year old niece.
On Thursday, detectives from Santa Clara County Sheriffs Department and DHS agents made child porn cases when suspects they were chatting with decided to send files of child pornography.
On Friday, detectives from San Francisco PD arrested a suspect who agreed to travel to a seedy motel in San Francisco for sex with a minor. When he arrived, he was taken into custody and eventually booked for several felony charges.
I want to thank you again for coming out and teaching this class. I believe that your class has armed our Silicon Valley ICAC investigators with plenty of information to make numerous arrests of sexual predators for a long time to come. I would highly recommend your class to any other ICAC that is interested in hosting.

“Excellent instructor and facilitator. Also impresses reality of working these cases on the investigator. Some people are called to be Doctors, Preachers, Kevin was called to serve the most innocent of our society.”
“This is one of the best trainings I have attended. Learned a great deal. Agent Laws went out of his way to make sure the content was understood. I really liked the case discussions and how they were put together for prosecution.”

“ This class exceeded my expectations. The instruction was easy to follow and the material presented in a clear and logical manner. Kevin is a great presenter. This is not for the faint at heart, but the material needs to be presented in a realistic manner.”
“ One of the best classes I have been to in law enforcement for the past 22 years. The hands on cases were great, pulled it all together. We not only learned from the instructor but also each other. Thanks for your one on one help if needed. Your experience in chat shows. I would recommend this class.”
