Washington State Narcotics Investigators Association (WSNIA) Training Summit and Vendor Show, April 23–26, 2018
WSNIA is pleased to announce our key note speaker, Timothy Kennedy, an active Green Beret, former MMA fighter, law enforcement Trainer and founder of Sheepdog Response, will talk about “The Purpose of Pain.”
Tim will lead a discussion on how to become faster, stronger, and ultimately, harder to kill. He’ll explore how training, sleep, work, recovery, and sex can all complement each other and help individuals achieve peak performance in their field. He’ll discuss how individuals can fully utilize the cornerstones within their own lives that can make them the best version of themselves, the fundamentals of a warrior. For career military and police officers, there always comes a moment when they have to make a life or death decision – whether it’s their own life or of someone else. That moment will be a culmination of millions of small decisions that lead to an individual’s success or failure in that split second. Tim is driven to ensure that the men and women making these decisions have the tools needed for a successful outcome.
Narcos – Chasing Pablo, DEA SAC Javier Peña and Steve Murphy
WSNIA is proud to offer a special presentation by Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent in Charge (Ret.) Javier Peña and Steve Murphy.
SAC’s Peña and Murphy led the largest, most complex international and high-profile investigation of its time against Pablo Escobar, the worlds first narco-terrorist. This was the first time an international cartel was completely dismantled. Their story formed part of the backbone for the Netflix series Narcos.
