About The Rodgers Group, LLC

Our motto of "One Team, One Mission: Committed to Public Safety Professionalism" says it all.
We are credentialed and experienced public safety experts committed to our profession and dedicated to ensuring that professionalism is its cornerstone.
Leveraging our experience and business model will substantially reduce your agency’s exposure to liability while cutting operating costs and inculcating a culture of professionalism. Our on-line training modules, accreditation expertise, and web-based policy management experience are second to none. Our record of success is well established and growing rapidly because we customize every policy and training module for our client agencies while doing it much faster and significantly cheaper than they can do it themselves. Our value to your agency is further enhanced by virtue of the fact that staff needed to develop policy, prepare training curriculums, and manage your accreditation efforts can remain doing operations, saving your agency additional expenses.
To date, the company has been directly retained to assist in excess of in excess 200 separate law enforcement agencies and currently conducts in-service training for in excess of 4000 police officers each month.

In 2015, building upon our success we expanded our operations by creating a new Geospatial Intelligence Division working in exclusive partnership with BAE Systems. The new Division’s efforts focus on the creation and management of geospatial intelligence products used to plan for, manage and report on critical incidents.

Lt. Colonel Frank E. Rodgers (Ret.), President

Frank E. Rodgers retired as the Deputy Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police in 2007 at the rank of Lt. Colonel after twenty-five years of service. While serving in the second highest ranking position in the largest police department in the State of New Jersey, he led the Investigations Branch which consisted of in excess of 900 detectives, analysts and scientists assigned to 57 different units with an annual budget of in excess of seventy-five (75) million dollars. A strong advocate of police professionalism, strategic planning and accountability, he initiated and directed a complete restructuring of the organization’s investigative assets predicated on the principles of “Intelligence Led Policing”. During his tenure as the Deputy Superintendent of Investigations, he directed the development of the “Practical Guide to Intelligence Led Policing” which was published by the Center for Policing and Terrorism at the Manhattan Institute and was adopted in February 2009 by the U.S. Department of Justice as a national model for conducting law enforcement operations.

Following his career with the State Police, he was appointed as the first Police Director of the newly formed New Jersey State Park Police in the Department of Environmental Protection. During his tenure in that position, he developed the force of 120 officers who are responsible for protecting the eighteen (18) million annual visitors to the state’s fifty-one (51) parks into a CALEA (Commission on the Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) nationally recognized and New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police Accredited agency.

In 2008, Rodgers formed his own private consulting company. He was immediately contracted to serve as Team Leader of the baseline capabilities assessment of the national network of seventy-two (72) intelligence fusion centers commissioned by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. To date, the company has been contracted to develop policy and provide customized training services to in excess of one hundred seventy five law enforcement agencies. In 2008, he was certified as an Assessor for the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and the New Jersey Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. In 2009, he was selected to serve as the President of the Advisory Council of the New Jersey Public Safety Accreditation Coalition. He is recognized by the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey and the United States District Court as an expert in law enforcement procedures, policy, training and supervision. In 2011, he founded and now leads the Center for Public Safety & Security at Stockton University in New Jersey.

In January 2015, Rodgers expanded the company’s operations by creating a new Geospatial Intelligence Division working in exclusive partnership with BAE Systems. The new Division’s efforts focus on the creation and management of geospatial intelligence products used to plan for, manage and report on critical incidents.
