Karl Colder has over 32 years of experience working with the U.S. DEA. During this period, he became a Security Expert, with three decades of experience in national security threat response, and events and property securing. Today, Karl is the President of Colder Allied Consulting, LLC, a professional consulting services company where he is responsible for resource management, team building, project management, and contracting strategy enhancement.


Karl joins me again today to discuss how you can seek legal assistance if you feel your rights were violated by police officers. He describes the reasons why he sought to diversify his unit as much as possible, despite the criticism he received. He shares his thoughts on the looting and terrorizing that’s happening in Portland. Karl also explains how people can be proactive in their local communities for substance abuse patients.




"Companies should represent this country - and it’s the same for law enforcement."- Karl Colder

  • Seeking legal assistance when you experience police harassment.
  • Why Karl wanted diversity in his entire division and how he succeeded.
  • What Karl wanted his legacy to be before he left the DEA.
