Tim Freesmeyer has taught Resource Allocation and Deployment to thousands of law enforcement managers across the country over the last 20 years and is passionate about improving the operational efficiency and professionalism of law enforcement agencies.
    After ten years as an officer, detective, and supervisor in a mid-sized municipal police agency, Tim changed his career focus to that of an educator and trainer. Tim spent five years as an adjunct instructor for Northwestern University’s "School of Police Staff and Command" and then a final year as a full-time faculty member serving as the Director of Management Training. After leaving Northwestern, he taught 5-10 workshops per year for the next seven years for the International Association of Chief’s of Police (IACP) in the discipline of Resource Allocation, Deployment, and Scheduling.
    Tim founded Etico Solutions, Inc. in 2004 based on an overwhelming demand for education and consulting services in resource allocation, deployment, and scheduling. He teaches routinely in various law enforcement command programs in the states of Michigan, Missouri, and Illinois as well as sponsored workshops throughout the country. In addition to teaching, Tim conducts numerous police staffing studies each year for law enforcement agencies and assists agencies in determining efficient scheduling and deployment strategies.
