The Buffalo Valley Regional Police Commission (BVRPD) is seeking a Chief to oversee a department with 14 full-time and 2 part-time sworn officers and an administrative assistant.  The department serves the Borough of Lewisburg (approximately 1.5 square miles) and East Buffalo Township (approximately 15.25 miles) in Central Pennsylvania with a combined population of nearly 13,000.  With an annual operating budget of approximately $2.6 million, the Department provides a range of community policing and public safety services to the small town, which is the seat of Union County, and home of Bucknell University and Evangelical Community Hospital.  BVRPD is the busiest Union County police department, managing an average of 5,000 calls for service each year, dispatched by a regional emergency services dispatch center. The jurisdiction contains three major highway intersections, State Routes 15, 45 and 192.

The Chief of Police is appointed by the six-member Police Commission which consists of three representatives each from the funding municipalities, Lewisburg, and East Buffalo Twp.  The position works directly for the Commission which was formed with the merger or two smaller departments in 2011.  The current and first Chief of Police for BVRPD, is retiring after 13 years with the department, and 45 years in law enforcement.


Buffalo Valley is located on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and includes Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, and several bordering townships. The county is largely rural but quickly developing and is a 30–90-minute drive to larger cities such as Williamsport, State College, and Harrisburg.  Lewisburg, incorporated in 1822, serves as the Union County Seat and is home to the highly ranked Bucknell University and award-winning Evangelical Community Hospital. With its authentic Victorian architecture and small-town charm, as well as access to plenty of outdoor recreational activities and numerous state parks, Lewisburg is often considered a favorite Pennsylvania small town for its livability and as a tourist destination. Lewisburg is a hub of cultural and economic vitality in Central Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna River Valley. Home to many of the area’s leading businesses and organizations, Lewisburg continues to serve as one of the region’s social centers.  In addition to Bucknell University and Evangelical Community Hospital, the Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary is a major employer.  Notable features of our area include:

Job Opportunity - National Sales Rep to Law Enforcement – Work from home


“Cops like talking with cops.” This is ideal for a retired officer to represent us. If active duty but you have a few spare hours per week, it could also work. Know a retired officer? Let them know.

We’ve developed new, more effective  approaches to de-escalation training. Our course is accredited for 8 hours continuing professional education. It got high praise from world class experts.

You just introduce us. We’ll supply leads. We’ll close the sale with you or for you. You’ll recevie 15% of the revenue. NYPD for example would be over $700,000 for you.


Our company R3Results® has done employee training for over twenty-five years for some of the biggest corporations in the world such as Google, Comcast, Avis, MetLife, and others. We’ve provided consultation to every level of government. We have developed a training course Verbally Defusing Violent Confrontations that received high praise from top experts in the world. It is accredited by IADLEST (International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards & Training) for 8 hours continuing professional education credits for law officers, and it received their National Seal of Excellence.

Our course takes a new approach to the subject. One POST (Police Officers Standards & Training) director for a state said that he’d seen hundreds of de-escalation courses “But I can’t even begin to put into words how far superior your course is.” Top United Nations negotiators who deal with vicious warlords said: “Original and effective.” The colonel who headed security for The United States Marine Corps praised it as effective.

We teach how to control one’s inner state of being while under threat or attack. It is physical training which has a psychophysical result that “broadens your shoulders” and enables you to peacefully command someone who is very hyped up. The course combines high production value videos in which professional actors reenact real incidents in which violent attacks were successfully verbally defused, along with guided in-person training sessions practiced under stress following what was modeled. We have a U.S. utility patent on our unique methods, and this allows us to offer the course very economically and we can deploy it to any size group no matter how large, while assuring quality.

Your Role and Compensation 

“Cops like talking to cops” – that’s why we need you to represent us to the law enforcement community. You must have at least 5 yrs. duty as an officer. This position would be ideal for a retired officer. You should like talking to people and connecting with them. The position is also open to a currently employed officer who wishes to make more money and can devote several hours per week to the effort.

You would call the POST directors in the 50 states for continuing education and academy level training. You would call the major police departments in the country, on the municipal, state, and federal level. You would also contact the corrections facilities. We will supply leads with contact information. We know that many agencies already have some form of de-escalation training. They can try Part One of our four-part series on a free trial basis for a limited number of their officers and see if the response isn’t one of enthusiasm. This is not check-the-checkbox training. This is something effective for those who truly believe in law enforcement as a high calling, peacekeeping, and community policing.

Compensation for this position can be substantial.  As an example, if the program were purchased by NYPD, at a 15% commission rate, that is a very commendable $700,000 for you. That’s a real number. If a medium size department of 1,000, the commission is still over $20,000. We’ve put hundreds of thousands into developing the course. Now let’s sell it.

Added Benefits
Save lives & cut stress on fellow officers. We call these “Skills to Live By®”
Cut down on excessive force claims that cost cities and states around $3 billion per year.
The federal government is issuing more grant funding for de-escalation training.

How to Apply:
Send an email about your interest. Contact: Ken Hantman, President & Creative Director.  Direct phone 215—947-2338 (landline); email: [email protected] . We will then arrange a video meeting with you and Ken.  Ken’s business partner, G.A. Bartick, wrote a best-selling sales book used by 1-in-5 of The Fortune 50, and he will personally coach you in how to go about this.
