In 2000, Mr. Freeman founded Defensive Tactics Technologies (DTT), a POST-certified law enforcement security, institutional, and personal protection agency. He and Master Steven Seagal have co-authored the latest DTT POST-Certified Training courses (police officer standards).   Since 2003, Mr. Freeman has been on the faculties of Blackburn College and Culver-Stockton College, teaching Defensive Tactics for the Criminal Justice departments.  In addition, he has provided training for public and private schools and universities throughout the St. Louis region.  (Washington University, St. Louis University, University of Missouri-St. Louis, Ursuline Academy, and Chaminade College Preparatory School.)   Mr. Freeman has also served as adjunct faculty at the Smith and Wesson Academy, Springfield Massachusetts.   Mr. Freeman is also on the advisory board for the Criminal Justice programs at ITT Tech and the Judevine Association.
