Testimonials Dr. Simon

Police Officer
“Dr. Simon really knows how to captivate an audience with his ‘Sexual Deviance in the New Millennium’ presentation.  Never a dull moment, as he keeps the class interesting at every turn.  He offers valuable insight into the minds of sexual predators drawing from real world experience and research.  The seminar was educational and thought-provoking at the same time.  A must see for law enforcement!”

Detective Mike Wilson Benton County Sheriff's Office

"Dr. Simon, great presentation on Sexual Deviant Killers hosted by the Spokane County Sheriff's Office. I now have a better understanding of the twisted mindset of these killers possess. Your presentation really hit home on the importance of why we do what we do. Tracking and creating a profile database on sex offenders has become a great tool for many law enforcement agencies. Your insight into the minds of this particular group has strengthened my resolve"  

Detective Thomas Queen Omaha Police Department Homicide Unit

"I attended Dr. Simon's seminar Sexual Deviance in The New Millinnium in Omaha, Nebraska on May 8th and 9th, 2014. I was greatly pleased with the material presented and the way it was prese ted by Dr. Simon. He engaged the audience in conversation, kept us interested in the material and answered all the questions asked of him in a complete and thorough manner. On more than one occassion Dr. Simon would explain a paraphilia and I would remember a case I had worked and think, that's what was going on.......the training I received in the two-days that Dr. Simon was with us definately opened my eyes to an aspect of investigation that I was not acquainted with and the training will assist me in future investigations and aid in keeping citizens in Omaha safe. Thank you, Dr. Simon!"

Danny Miller

West Virginia State Police Retired

“I have been in law enforcement for 38 years.....I was an instructor at the West Virginia State Police Academy for 13 years. I have never sat in on a class more thought provoking, verbally and visually well-prepared presentation. Dr. Simon is obviously an expert on the Sexual Predator. Shocking, revealing, controversial, is how I would best describe this seminar. I would recommend this seminar to anyone interested in the mindset of criminal investigations.”
Mounted police
“Dr. Simon's insights and cutting-edge research into the mind of the dangerous criminal is engaging and relevant to the unique demands of a modern criminal investigation. While the veteran investigator understands the law and the investigative process, Dr. Simon clearly and concretely explains the why behind the crime. By understanding the motivations of those who harm the most vulnerable among us, Dr. Simon enhances the investigative arsenal of even the most seasoned investigator. The day after attending Dr. Simon's class, I received a disclosure. As I finished interviewing the victim's mother, she asked me how I knew the perpetrator? When I told her the suspect lived over 100 miles from me and I had never met him she seemed surprised and a little shocked. I had simply applied what I had learned in Dr. Simon's class.”

"Please accept thanks and kudos for both an excellent presentation, "Sexual
Deviance in the New Millennium", and even more for your kindness and willingness
to provide invaluable support and guidance in a difficult and complex
investigation which we were recently involved with."

Lieutenant Tom Leband
Fresno Police Department


As commander of the Fresno Police Department’s Family Justice Bureau, which includes the Child Abuse, Sexual Assault, and Domestic Violence Units, I recently attended Dr. Simon’s training held in Fresno, California.  The course, Perspectives on Serial Sexual Violence, was attended by a wide variety of area law enforcement, probation, parole, district attorney, and victim advocate agencies.  Dr. Simon’s course provided attendees with important tools to help place themselves in a position to understand offender motivation, enhance interviews, determine key signs to look for and allow for successful investigation and prosecution.  The material presented covered a wide range of different types of perpetrators of sexual violence.  About 100 attendees were in the class, no one left early, and many stayed over after the class for further discussions with Dr. Simon.  It’s a difficult but, unfortunately a necessary subject that investigators need to understand.  Dr. Simon has an extensive background studying, interviewing and treating these predators and he doesn’t disappoint when he shares the insight that his extensive work has generated on the subject."
“Lawrence, I wanted to thank you personally for providing your outstanding training services to our department. Each of the students that attended your Exploring Violence and the Criminal Mind class and Inside the Mind of a Sexual Predator class had nothing but positive comments regarding the courses. The comments came from patrol officers as well as seasoned detectives from various bureaus within our agency. One common comment from most of the evaluations was to bring this instructor back for more classes because he is outstanding. Thank you again for your quality training services you provide for us."

“Dr. Simon's class "Inside the Mind of a Sexual Predator" helped me step out of the box in my investigations. His class helped provoke more questions and information from these investigations that allowed me to conduct a more thorough investigation. There was an over-abundance of information provided for a short 2-day course and any seasoned detective would benefit from this with prior knowledge and understanding of the terminology used in the class. This class has helped me to understand the suspects I am dealing with and have a respect that these behaviors are more informative rather than predictive. I highly recommend this class to any seasoned detective who has worked sex crimes and/or homicide."

Detective Matthew Bade


Burton Police Department, Michigan 

"As a detective for 14 years specializing in sex crimes, I found Dr. Simon's "Sexual Deviance in the New Millennium" class to be one of the best classes on the subject matter I have ever attended. In addition to classroom instruction, Dr. Simon took personal time to review and assist me with a cold case homicide I have been working on for nine years. Dr. Simon showed more interest and provided more relevant insight than any other instructor that I have requested assistance from."

Sergeant Angela Escobar

Kensington Police Department 

“Thank you again for the great training course on Inside the Mind of a Sexual Predator. You are a great instructor. You make the class so interesting with your high energy, humor, professionalism, stories, experience, and passion (for the topic you are teaching). You are truly contributing to the world by teaching law enforcement officer's things that not many people in society know about (sexual deviants and how they think and operate). The information you teach is important for the work that we do on a daily basis. I will look at a crime scene differently because of your training. Thank you for expanding our minds to see the things we may not have seen or thought about if we did not get the training that you gave us. You said it all in the end with the slides of the many victims. It's about helping and caring about other human beings. Also, being a part of catching or stopping people from harming others, and making a difference in the world, like what you are doing. Thank you.”
