I was very pleased with Mr. Flosi’s expertise in the field of police use of force. He has an in-depth understanding of the current law as it relates to the various force options available to police officers and he is polished in the art of testifying. Aside from his vast knowledge in police use of force cases, I was impressed with his indefatigable work ethic. I needed things done in a somewhat of a crunch and Mr. Flosi came through. I would not hesitate in hiring Mr. Flosi again.

Ed was on several Peace Officers Standards in Training (POST) committee’s with me for the State of California. Most notably the Use of Force Learning Domain for Police Training. Ed is a dedicated hard working police professional who has proven himself to clearly understand balancing police use of force and community policing. That service to our communities and our integrity are the two core values of all Police Officers. I give Ed my highest recommendation for employment.

I was fortunate to work with Ed Flosi on a number of major projects while assigned to the R & D Unit of the SJPD. Ed consistently delivered the highest levels of professionalism, knowledge, experience, and effective communications in his work. His expertise in case law and how it applies to law enforcement issues made his role critical in policy development. Ed’s many years of experience as a police officer, sergeant, and law enforcement trainer enabled him to be able to clearly answer any questions or explain the many complex and related issues – not only to his peers, but to non-law enforcement audiences as well; his knowledge often surpassed that of legal counsel.

Sgt. Flosi’s real world experience in policing and academic background on use of force was extremely helpful in my research developing metrics for measuring deadly force performance and difficulty.
