“Robert Almonte’s program on the Patron Saints of the Mexican Drug Underworld is relevant in every corner of the U.S. and internationally. Even the most grizzled and street-hardened lawman will be shocked and amazed at what we are up against investigating narco terrorism. Robert’s experience helps make the law enforcement community smarter and more importantly, safer.”
"I just wanted to thank you… I attended the training you have in LA… and it proved extremely useful.” “…we did a search warrant at the apartment of a murder suspect. “one bedroom of the apartment was completely dedicated to this worship, with shrines, candles, etc… under the candles were handwritten prayers for things such as wealth and protection…" “Because of your training, I was able to recognize the room and knew what to expect. I was then able to speak intelligently about it to the suspect’s girlfriend, without whom, we would not have been able to file the (murder) case.”
I attended your Patron Saints class yesterday at the DEA, and I wanted to yell you that it was one of the best classes I’ve taken.
Your expertise and command of the subject helped the jury understand the belief in Narco-Patron Saints icons and its importance to (this ) drug trafficking organization.
Without your training I might have missed these (drug saint) indicators and the money.
If you attend only one training event this year let it be this (one). It will be a great eye opener for you and possibly save you and your partners life.
