Use Magic and Puppets for Crime Prevention presentations for children and adults. Safety topics for children with magic and puppets deal with Stranger Danger, Drug and Alcohol issues, etc. For adults I show fraud related issues such as Bunco in con games or carnival game fraud. I also use magic and puppets for that. Some comedy is used in these presentations.
I have known Glenn for over 25 years, his dedication to Crime Prevention is extensive. Starting out as a Police Officer in New York State, he incorporated magic to illustrate con scemes and scams. Now, living on the Golden Isles of Georgia, he continues to educate and irradicate crime through his programs. Known as "The Southern Gentleman" to the Magic community, his smooth magical ability has charmed ALL audiences, put that together with his knowldge of crime fighting and he presents a "Double Whammy" of a program. I thoroughly endorse Glenn and applaud him in his quest to present shows intended to help the common man recognize a con artist play to eliminate this type of parasite from society, with the talent of entertaining you in the process.
Response from Police Magic:
Thank you Cliff. While I do enjoy presenting the con game presentations for the adults, I also love doing the Stranger Danger programs for the children. Great review you gave me. I just hope that I am half as talented as you are.

What to Expect
An Educational and Entertaining presentation on the subject matter chosen for the age group.
I am a retired police officer who uses magic and puppets to demonstrate crime prevention topics to both children and adults. For children, I talk about Stranger Danger, Personal Safety, Anti Drug and Alcohol, Good Citizenship, and Obeying the Rules and Laws. For adults I do presentations on Bunco (Fraud related subject matter) to include Street Scams, Home Scams, Retail Scams and Paranormal Phenomena Scams. I also present a show with actual rigged carnival games to show the Laws of Physics, Principles of Science and Magic that are used to deceive the player. Some comedy is used with the magic and puppets.
Additional Booking Notes
