I've seen Garry Parker speak on three different occasions. The first presentation was at the Law Enforcement Conference Symposium (LECS) in Albuquerque, NM back on 2017. This was my first time hearing Mr. Parker speak and it was eye opening and he kept me engaged. Being that Mr. Parker had a law enforcement background, he speaks at a level that keeps cops entertained.
I then had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Parker speak again at a Safer New Mexico Now conference in 2018. This topic was geared towards data based Enforcement (aka DDACTS). I'm a true believer in DDACTS and Mr. Parker hit the nail on the head in this presentation. He did such a great job on this topic that I brought Mr. Parker to my agency to speak about DDACTS.
In 2019 Mr. Parker spoke to the Albuquerque Police Dept. on DDACTS. I was responsible for bringing Mr. Parker here and after his presentation, I had numerous police officers (of all ranks) come up to me and ask where I found Garry Parker? I advised them that I had heard him speak at a couple different conferences and asked what they thought...they all advised they loved him, that he's entertaining and kept them engaged.
I would highly recommend Garry Parker as a presenter. He's a great presenter and keeps the audience engaged.
I met Garry Parker a couple years ago at our Traffic Safety Conference in Kansas. I've heard a lot of speakers in my 33 years of Law Enforcement but I have never witnessed a speaker like Mr. Parker that keeps an audience's attention as he does. He tells Law Enforcement the way it is and doesn't pull any punches. He talks on Officer Safety as well as Officer's Driving Techniques. The first time I heard him he talked for approximately 4 hours. Most of the time when a speaker talks for that long they loose the audience. Not with Mr. Parker. Officers are just as attentive at the end as they are at the beginning. If you want a speaker that will get your attention, make you think about things you have been doing on vehicle stops and driving, he is your man. He may save your life. Would recommend him to anyone.
He also speaks to HIgh School Students about driving behavior and what will save their life. This past week I spent 2 days with him at High Schools in Eastern Kansas. Over those 2 days he spoke to approximately 900 High School Students. I heard students talking about what they had heard and the response was positive.
We need more speakers like Mr. Parker to help save lives in Law Enforcement as well as our children.
It is my great pleasure to recommend Garry Parker as a keynote speaker and/or presenter for your training event, conference, or gathering. We have had Garry speak at a number of our conferences in Oregon, and it is well worth the investment to bring him here from Texas.
I can’t recommend Garry Parker highly enough. He is the whole package – a retired Texas Trooper who is a dynamite speaker with an engaging message. His passion for saving lives is unrivaled, and his message is important. If your conference is looking for a fervent, professional orator who will motivate your audience to action, Garry is the answer for you.
Finally, Garry isn’t just geared toward messaging traffic safety to the public – he is one of the few people who also has the credibility to engage and motivate law enforcement to change their behavior for the improvement of the lives of officers and constituents.
