Instructor Bio

My name is Michael Heisinger, I started my career in Law Enforcement with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office in Indiana.  I worked with the department for 15 years holding the positions of Deputy, Narcotics Detective, Motorcycle Officer, FTO and SWAT. During my time with this department, I was able to enjoy teaching the reserve program academy as well as instructing several different disciplines within the SWAT program. At 15 years, I retired from the department and gained employment with the University of Indianapolis Police Department where I was a Detective, SWAT Team Leader and FTO Coordinator. While with the University I assisted in the Cadet Academy as an Adjunct Professor with the Criminal Justice Department instructing the CJ students in Law Enforcement. I then received the opportunity to come to my hometown Alamogordo, NM to work at the same department my dad worked at, and where I grew. I worked at this department for two years as a patrol Officer and SWAT Team Leader before accepting the position of Chief of Police for the Village of Tularosa, NM. During my time with the Village of Tularosa I developed the FTO program due to the department not having one. I enjoyed my time as the Chief of Police with the department and have now retired completely from Law Enforcement. I have enjoyed my time in Law Enforcement and am now enjoying teaching across the country.
