“I had the opportunity over the past 15 years to attend several “training sessions” with Dr. Steve Sampson. I have found him to be invaluable in changing the thinking of many individual’s traditional leadership methods and styles in this profession. As Chief, Dr. Sampson has provided a service of professional psychological screening for new recruits. GPS3 is another example of his ability to provide a much needed service to law enforcement by providing quality candidates and saving resources.”

“I have known Dr. Steve Sampson for twenty-five years. He has been a successful professor in the Criminal Justice Department as well as the College of Education at Georgia State University. Dr. Sampson has assisted this department in Fitness for Duty evaluations of police officers. The Law Enforcement community throughout Georgia and the entire United States holds Dr. Sampson in high regard. I can unequivocally vouch for his character and his integrity.”
Chief of Police/Assistant V.P., Connie B. Sampson (Georgia State University)

“Dr. Sampson has been so many things to many people in law enforcement. His extraordinary insight into what we do is remarkable. In the twenty-five years I have known him, he has demonstrated an enormous capacity to be at the right place at the right time; from helping us with a troubled officer, to consoling and guiding us through the tough times associated with the death of an officer. Each time I have called on him, he dropped what he was doing and was there for us. So it is with great confidence and enduring anticipation that I await his new business enterprise, GPS3. We have talked in depth about the needs GSP3 has to offer law enforcement, and the fact that his name is associated with it provides immediate credibility.  His sustained honesty and undying desire to associate with law enforcement officers for nearly four decades gives him a unique perspective in helping us solve problems for our agency and the community.”
Chief Dwayne Hobbs (Forest Park PD)
