ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Lance A. Platt, Ph.D., President and founding partner of Platt and Associates, earned a doctorate in Educational Human Resource Development from Texas A&M University located in College Station, Texas after serving as a certified master peace officer with the city of College Station, Texas. Among his many responsibilities, he was in charge of training new recruits.

Doctor Platt was later named Coordinator for the Drug Evaluation and Classification Program (DRE) at Texas A&M’s TEEX Law Enforcement Training Division. Additionally, he was an adjunct instructor at several colleges, where he provided training in law enforcement based on his in-depth first hand knowledge of police practice and procedure.Doctor Platt’s unique combination of doctorate-level education and street level law enforcement experience led him to co-found Walden Platt and Associates in 2002, which later became Platt and Associates Impaired Driving Consulting in 2008, which has become the premiere consulting firm specializing in impaired driving and police tactics and procedure cases throughout the US and beyond. You can rely on consistent top quality results because Dr. Platt insists on personally reviewing each case his firm accepts.

Doctor Platt’s dissertation was entitled An Evaluation of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test at a .08 Blood Alcohol Concentration for the State of Texas.
