Phil Dimartino

Instructor

A 15-year veteran of a large urban police department, Sgt. DiMartino has spent his career in the heart of the city. His favorite mantra from former Kansas City Chief’s player, John Welbourn, is a perfect encapsulation of how he goes about the majority of his life. “Some days you have a shovel, some days you have a spoon. The point is you’re always moving the dirt.” He spent seven years as a motivated and dedicated Field Training Officer, and has now spent another four years and counting as a Field Training Officer sergeant. DiMartino understands the needs of new employees and trainers alike. 

As a former football coach, current business owner, and a father, he understands the importance of possessing a broad ranging skill set for resiliency. DiMartino is a skillful lecturer (who has clearly watched one too many pro wrestling pay per views as a kid), providing for a captivating instructional style dotted with real-world personal examples of resiliency in action. He is also second-generation law enforcement and vividly remembers being raised by cops, which adds to his collection of entertaining stories for sure.

This material is all encompassing from executive leadership down to the newest recruit. It doesn't matter whether you're training a recruit or you're breaking in a new commander at any rank, this program can help the supervisor/FTO teach the subordinate how to deal with the stressors of the job.

Major Ryan Miller

Thank you for coming to teach the topic. I feel I was able to get a lot out of it and hope to implement some of it with my time and in my personal life. I do think the entire department could benefit from the training.

The content was presented in a way that made sure all attendees retained the knowledge. Every person walked out of that training with new tools and ideas that will help support both themselves and the success of incoming officers.
