Practicing Perfection® in Law Enforcement

A Leadership Learning Opportunity

For Law Enforcement Professionals


Allegations of racial profiling and police brutality appear in the media on an almost daily basis. Members of the general public seem to be losing faith in law enforcement, and in some instances, law enforcement officers believe their own department has lost faith in them.

  • Current officer indoctrination training typically focuses upon making it home at the end of the day without being injured, killed, complained about, disciplined, or sued
  • Many law enforcement officers are feeling under siege and unsupported
  • Police departments across the country are reporting increasing levels of staff turnover


There is now an OPPORTUNITY for the leaders within your department/agency to learn HOW to truly LEAD, and to develop skills for tapping into and promoting the core aspects of what it means to be a great ‘cop’.

It’s called…

Practicing Perfection® in Law Enforcement

Frequently Asked Questions

What [exactly] is “Practicing Perfection®”?

Practicing Perfection® is a new paradigm. It is a next-level improvement approach, which focuses upon the core element of all organizational planning, operation, and execution- human performance. It offers a refreshing (and desperately needed) departure from the old-school tactics of managing people like ‘things’. Tapping into and leveraging positive aspects of human nature, it generates and multiplies intrinsic desires to excel, and to make things ‘better’. Specifically, it is a street-proven method to: Transform organizational culture, get workers to WANT to do the right thing and to be proactively accountable, generate true management and supervision support, and to get team members to "follow the rules" (even when no one else is watching).

HOW is the Practicing Perfection® approach to improving human performance applicable to Law Enforcement?

Successful law enforcement operations requires that officers and administrators make good choices. Sometimes these choices must be made ‘in the moment’. Sometimes they are literally ‘life and death’. In spite of all of the technical and tactical training law enforcement professionals receive, underlying human characteristics often prevail at acute moments of impact. By expanding context, internalizing a sense of Proactive Accountability® and ‘one team’, and layering in simple behavioral tools for minimizing errors, the Practicing Perfection® approach positively impacts all actions, choices, and decisions- from the routine day-to-day, to those intense moments when ‘everything’ is on the line.

How (specifically) will attending this Leadership Learning Experience benefit me / my department/agency?

Organizations and leaders within them who “get it” are rapidly coming to the realization that old-school attempts to ‘move forward’ are simply not working. Human performance represents the ‘ultimate frontier’ in performance improvement. The Practicing Perfection® Leadership Learning Experience teaches you precisely WHAT to do to take the attitudes and behaviors within your department/agency to their next level. In so doing, your working culture is transformed, errors are reduced, morale is improved, and sense of pride and ownership are strengthened.

Does the Practicing Perfection Institute (PPI) have experience teaching law enforcement officers and supervisors?

Our director of Law Enforcement Services, Bob Catinazzo (Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Supervisory Special Agent [retired]) is a recognized expert in human performance facilitation, error reduction, and culture transformation throughout the law enforcement community. Over the course of his 20-year law enforcement career, Bob has represented the DEA as an instructor in many law Enforcement Conferences in the US and abroad. He has provided next-level instruction in the areas of Leadership, Tactics, Defensive Tactics, and Operational Risk Management, offering his insights and expertise to state and local Law Enforcement Officers, International Law Enforcement Officers, DEA Basic Agents, DEA Supervisors, and the FBI National Academy. Across the board, from executive to mid-level managers, front line supervisors, and line employees, many who participated in training facilitated by Bob have indicated that it was the best training they ever attended. Bob has been utilized by the DEA as an expert Tactical Witness, and has authored Expert Reports in DEA cases throughout the US.

How is Practicing Perfection® in Law Enforcement different from other leadership type training courses?
