 Hey everyone. 


I spent 14 years in the Air Force. Entered as a Weapon's instructor in 1990 and shortly after transitioned into Security Police as an AGR (Active Guard Reserve) I handled all LEO responsibilities and acted as the flight chief responsible for all activity that happens on the base after hours. I spent almost my entire military career working with the Pennsylvania National Guard Counterdrug Program and was involved with the inception, planning and day to day operations of the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center. I designed their current logo! The night photo surveillance course that I helped instruct is credited as being the first, and longest running course offered by NCTC!


I Cross trained into Visual information around 1998 for a promotion opportunity. Graduated art school as an honor grad. At this point I had moved out of the LE career field as a day to day road dog job, but continued to work and  instruct at the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center. I was also responsible for all of the graphic, photo and video work for the program.


I started my first coin company around the same time I graduated military art school. Although I had a new career path, I was still a cop at heart.  I created a series of "National Police Week" coins that I minted for three years in a row, and attended police week in DC as a vendor each year. We donated a portion of our funds from police week to the National LEO memorial in DC. In 2011, we minted the first September 11th commemorative coin. We donated 100% of the proceeds to the disaster relief fund and were able to raise $80,500.00.


I did the FOP coin for Chuck Canterbury's election back in 2003! Met him at police week.


Now I'm a media consultant for eight radio stations by day, and coin designer and small business partner in the evening. We have programs to help organizations raise money with a commemorative coin program, with no up front out of pocket cost or expense. No risk program because you pre-sell the coins and collect your fundraising money and money to cover the cost before the coins are even minted.




 Now I'm working on ways to help charities raise money through the use of coin fundraiser programs. I'm a partner in a 100% veteran owned and operated business. My business partner (Zuter) is an A-10 pilot. We were cops together at the 193d SOW since the 1990's. He cross trained into a pilot slot and has 24+ years service and is a current A-10 pilot.  If you're looking for a coin to commemorate a special occasion, feel free to contact us!


I live and work in Ocean City, MD and I'm happy to help anyone that needs help. 


 


Thanks,


Keith

Welcome to Police Link, Keith. Hello from Ohio!!


Ignore the troll. He makes an appearance, gets nasty and disappears. I have heard through the grapevine he leaves quickly because he has no gonads. :)

Welcome, enjoy the site.  Every web site has its trolls.  Ignore them and they go away on their own.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

My wife, my 2 year old and I went out to Assateague Island the night of the meteor shower and it was pretty incredible! Super dark and we were seeing shooting stars every minute or so somewhere in the sky. Maybe 10 minutes between what I would consider big bright shooting stars!
