In have known AA for over five years. In that time, I had the privilege of watching AA impart his passion for SWAT operations to countless students. Never have I known any instructor so dedicated to officer survival. Although some instructors have recently adopted the slogan, "Stay In The Fight", AA has been teaching this mindset to Operators for years. In fact, he not only encourages Operators to, "Stay In The Fight", he demands it! I have observed him make new Operators good, and good Operators great. I would recommend to any one who is in the business of Tactical Operations to attend training conducted by AA Boone
Consultant at Operator Safety Solutions, LLC
AA is a great, highly motivated instructor and an even better person. You won't go wrong if you bring in his training. I have had several classes with him. It is very good training and I wouldn't trade the things he teaches for anything. Stay in the fight!!
One of the very best trainers I have ever worked with... If you want your team highly motivated and trained in real world tactics, Boone is your man. He has the training and experience to back everything he delivers. I've taken many of his courses myself and also taught along side of him for many years at The North Carolina Justics Academy. In addition, I know the men and women he has served with and the reputation he has made for himself as on of the very best Operators and Instructors in our field. You simply will not find a better tactical instructor anywhere on the planet.

I credit Double A with teaching me more than I could list in this recommendation. He is one of the most motivating, innovative and tactically sound operators and trainers in the world - period! I recommend him for any law enforcement or tactical training that you or your organization would ever want. Get ready, though, because he brings the heat! You had better be ready to push your body and skills to the next level. Most of all, Double A taught me to 'Stay in the Fight'!

I have worked with Alvin as a Co-Worker and Instructor. I have also been one of his students in SWAT Training. He is one of the most Professional, Knowledgeable and Driven Officer/Instructors that I have ever met in my 30 years of Public Safety/Emergency Services experience. He really puts his students first and does everything in his power to get the best out of them to make them a safer and more competent officer.
