Don't Have Regrets; Take Chances!

About Frank Borelli

A native of Cumberland, Maryland, Frank attended DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland and immediately thereafter began his law enforcement career as a Military Police Officer in the United States Army. At the age of four he had declared his desire to become a police officer.  In junior high school he admitted his desire to be a writer.  Just prior to enlisting in the army he knew he wanted to become a police trainer.  Along with having a family, those were his dreams.

Having begun his law enforcement career as an MP, and upon receiving his first Honorable Discharge, Frank became a civilian police officer. His 25+ year career included assignments in patrol, training, youth services, investigations, task force assignments, and more. In 1989 Frank become a certified police instructor and had, at that point, made two of his dreams come true.  In 1995 Frank re-entered military service as a member of the Maryland Army National Guard serving both in the infantry and combat engineers.

In addition to his police and military service, Frank began a writing career in 1999, finalizing (or actually just beginning) his third dream. With several hundred articles now published internationally, eight books and two research papers published (so far), Frank is the Editor In Chief for and the Editorial Director for the Cygnus Law Enforcement Media team which runs, Law Enforcement Technology magazine and Law Enforcement Product News magazine.

Having made all three of his career dreams a reality by the age of 35, and demonstrating a positive, motivated lifestyle, Frank was approached by several friends and work mates to become a motivational speaker.  Having been the keynote speaker at several professional police events and having produced, with Steve Forgues, a book about motivational thoughts and philosophies (Above Dirt), Frank finally kicked off a motivational teacher/coach/speaker career.  If you’d like Frank to speak at one of your events, send an email to
