“I worked in law enforcement for over thirty years as an investigator, instructor and commander. I have investigated and supervised many violent crimes, including domestic violence, human trafficking and sex crimes. I also teach and trained law enforcement officers and hold seminars for citizens and groups. Naturally I consider myself a good and informed instructor. That was until I met Ms. Joyce Parkinson. I must admit that I was totally amazed with her domestic violence presentation. As a law enforcement trainer, we basically use the same format. Ms. Parkinson brings a very different and refreshing perspective to the issue of domestic violence, with her passion and knowledge. I was so impressed that I now use Ms Parkinson as my professional consultant and readily refer her to other agencies and groups.”
