    Instructor

    A highly-respected police legal instructor and a police officer since 2004, Zach Miller specializes in federal and state constitutional law. Since 2009, Zach has worked very closely with nationally-recognized police law attorney Randy Means. Together, they have contracted with agencies nationwide on a vast array of projects requiring legal expertise and specialization. For example, they worked with several law enforcement agencies, including two of the largest sheriff’s departments in the country, that were subject to federal intervention due to their unconstitutional practices. There, they developed training programs and policies to address the federal government’s justifiable concerns. Other projects have included use of force incident review, high-liability policy development and leadership training. Zach and Attorney Means have also co-authored numerous articles about constitutional policing for Law and Order magazine.
