WHAT IS THE CORNELIUS PROJECT?
The Cornelius Project is an outreach to law enforcement officers. We are very much aware of the present tension that exist in the lives of police officers.
Our objective is to provide resources that can equip officers with the tools that make them better at their job, as well as helping them in responding to the challenges that comes from their profession.

LIVE AND ONLINE EVENTS
In the last few years, we have conducted hundreds of seminars across the country (about 40 states). COVID had an effect on our seminars, however, beginning in 2021, we will resume live events around the country (online and in person).
Our speakers will be exceptional individuals who have “been through the fire.” Some of them you know very well. The topics covered will be relevant to today’s police.
VIDEO: In July of 2016, FIVE police officers were shot to death in downtown Dallas. I (Jimmy Meeks) was in Dallas the night this took place. Some of the Cowboy players wanted to honor the officers, but were denied (a decal on the helmet, or something similar. The NFL, not the Cowboys admin, denied the request). I happen to be in Seattle when the Cowboys came to town. I went to the game (thanks to a Seattle cop friend) and proudly displayed my sign.
Fellow Officers – I am asking you to listen to this message in the video above. I have shared it with hundreds of police officers through the years.
I know you probably have a lot on your plate. But I am begging you to listen to this message. You will have questions afterwards. We can be reached at 817.437.9693.
