Thank you for visiting my website. Before you do business with any individual or company you need to conduct due diligence.  My name is John F. Bierdeman II and I conduct business in Florida; DBA, as the Gator Agency.  I'm also the Agency Manager.  I'm a retired Law Enforcement Officer with over 23 years of law enforcement experience.  I've held positions in Patrol Operations, Office of Professional Standards, and Police Training Divisions. I served as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer (FTO), Quality Assurance Officer for National Accreditation; CALEA, Field Training Administrative Corporal, Patrol Operations Field Training Coordinator, Detentions & Corrections Field Training Coordinator, and a multi-discipline Instructor. I held licensure as a Private Investigator & Security Services provider in Ohio for 6 years.  I've been licensed in Florida since 2013. I've also worked in private sector manufacturing, operated heavy machinery, fabrication, welding, and sales.

​My insight and perspective is based upon real world experience, formal education in social & behavioral sciences, specialized training from numerous organizations such as the Dept. of Defense, FBI, FEMA, and Homeland Security. I utilize my years of hands on, "outside the box" thinking, and creative problem solving experience in providing professional investigative, security consulting, and training services for my clients. 

​My experience includes the design and implemented of an agency-wide inspections program in compliance with CALEA standards. I enhanced capabilities and performance of an employee training, performance evaluation & documentation system by migrating it from a paper system to a computer based system which I designed and implemented. I've designed and conducted high risk/threat scenario training. I designed and implemented a computer based weapons inventory maintenance and qualification records system. To fulfill the training needs of a law enforcement agency I created and implemented "Train-The-Trainer" instructor training programs.  I authored a unified performance training evaluation and management program: UPTEAM, for trainers. I authored a users manual for Tri-Tech; a computer aided dispatch system for  patrol officers.  ​I instructed on numerous topics to include Firearms, Deadly Force, Policy & Procedures, Report Writing, Criminal Laws & Criminal Procedure in Florida.
