My name is Richard Dean and I am the owner of Marin Consulting Associates (MCA).  After 25 years with the Lodi Police Department, I retired and in 2001 became an instructor with MCA.  In 2007 I purchased the company and MCA has been a terrific business in my (semi) retirement.  I set my own schedule and work as much or as little as I choose.  I generally teach our classes in California in the spring and fall, leaving my summers and winters open to pursue my outdoor interests.  My associate teaches our classes outside of California. 

 Front office work such as scheduling, marketing, processing registrations, and returning calls and emails, takes from 4 – 8 hours a week depending on the season.  Front office work can be done anywhere you have an internet connection, which adds to the flexibility of the operation.

The Business

MCA presents training workshops for law enforcement personnel, including professional staff.  All of our courses focus on leadership, performance management, and accountability in the workplace. Assertive Supervision and Leadership and Accountability are our signature courses in California, and both are POST and STC Certified.  Beyond California we present our Performance and Accountability course which is certified in multiple states.  Our business is particularly good in Utah, where our Performance, Accountability and Employee Discipline Workshop is required in order to obtain the Utah POST Management Certificate.

Included in the sale of MCA is the business name, associated good will, web site, all training curriculum, instructional materials, course certifications, marketing materials, client lists, and training and support in both classroom instruction and front office operations.

Our Clientele

MCA has trained over 35,000 law enforcement leaders from more than 1,500 federal, state, and local agencies nationwide.  While most of our courses are held California, in 2023 we will also present workshops in Colorado, Idaho, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Utah and Wyoming.  The opportunity for growth in this business is only limited by the number of classes you (and/or your instructors) are choose to present.  Again, please check out our “Training Calendar”, “Client List” and other information on our web site at 


MCA’s gross revenue for the past five years averaged approximately $250,000 per year.  Gross revenue in 2022 was approximately $300,000 with a net of approximately $200,000.  Full financial disclosure will be provided to qualified buyers.

Price and Terms

The price for MCA is $375,000.  Terms are negotiable and the price may be negotiable, depending on the terms.


This is a great opportunity for a retired or soon to be retired law enforcement manager with solid classroom facilitation skills.  It would also be a profitable acquisition for an existing training provider looking to expand their business.
