B.O.S.S. Business Owners Supporting Sheriffs

While attending his local Sheriff’s academy, Dr. Robert O'Block witnessed firsthand the devastating effects that budget cuts had on his Sheriff's Office. Realizing, his county was not alone, he conceived the concept for a national program that would increase public awareness on the funding issues affecting Sheriffs and help to promote community partnerships nationwide.

In 2010, he created, and trademarked, B.O.S.S., Business Owners Supporting Sheriffs, to encourage business owners and civic leaders nationwide to incorporate and use in their own communities.

At the official web site, www.BOSSheriffs.org, community leaders and Sheriffs can find all of the information, resources, and tools needed to establish independent B.O.S.S. chapters in their own counties.

Dr. O'Block's professional career spans a lifetime of work within the field of law enforcement. At only 19 years old, he served as a police dispatcher, at 20 he worked full time as a city patrol officer and attended college full time, and by the time he reached the age of 24, he had graduated from college four times and obtained three graduate degrees in three distinctive fields. He became a college professor at the young age of 25 and by 27, published his first book, Security and Crime Prevention. Dedicated to the field of law enforcement, Dr. O'Block continued to serve as a reserve sheriff deputy (without pay) as he taught criminal justice full time at the university. Always a high achiever, he departed from the world of Academia at the age of 40, to further develop and merge his passions for law enforcement and education with his entrepreneurial and visionary spirit. Acknowledged and recognized for his many personal and professional achievements, Dr. O'Block's biography is also listed in the following publications: Who's Who in the World and Who's Who in America.
