  • “This webinar did a lot for me as a Probation Officer. 1 it reinforced the reason that I always wear my vest when I go out for home visits. It also gave me some knowledge on PMF’s and what to look for, what people can do to make weapons that are not easily detectable, and to get around the laws. Thank you so much for this training.” — Melissa
