I am a retired police officer, educator, coach, and former tactical team operator. I prepare young adults for an amazing career in emergency services, policing, and corrections.

Mission to Learn
Duty to Serve 

Lonnie Croal is a retired police officer who understands the opportunities and challenges to recruitment and promotion. Beyond his education and experience, he is a professional coach and educator.


Lon does not provide life coaching, therapy, or advice. That is not how great coaching works. There is no fixing people here – far from it. Now, building measurable goals with results...that's what happens right here and right now.


Lonnie's motivation for executive coaching meets you where you are and grows upward focusing on a path of service – quickly. No cutting corners, no assumptions, and no excuses. How incredible would it be to start your career (and your wall) right now?
