Jerry Cameron spent a considerable part of his 17-year law enforcement career in the "war on drugs." Not only was he chief of two small-town police departments, he participated as a front-line warrior in street enforcement and consequently was recognized nationally for developing a technique known as "Operation Pressure Point." Cameron also served as a full-time faculty member of the Institute of Police Technology and Management at the University of North Florida, where he taught drug interdiction, roadside interrogation techniques, police ethics, and management. He has spoken to audiences worldwide and met with members of Congress, state legislators, the media, and members of Parliament, as well as with law enforcement officials and researchers.
