David Rose co-authored Paradigm of the Moral Warrior with Sergeant Rocky Warren, Placer County Sheriff’s Department (ret.). Pulitzer Prize nominated author Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman (ret.) endorsed Paradigm of the Moral Warrior, saying, “The Paradigm of the Moral Warrior has the highest concentration of warrior wisdom I have ever found. Not just the remarkable, valuable and useful quotations, but the wise words of the authors will be of great service to warriors, (be they cops, soldiers or Marines) for many years to come. I will personally be mining nuggets (for my own writing) from this rich vein for many years to come.”


Additionally, David Rose co-authored with Sergeant Rocky Warren, Police Use of Force Case Law Instructor Guide.  According to one reader of Police Use of Force Case Law Instructor Guide, “I am on the road training law enforcement agencies at the federal, state and local level. This is the book that I recommend to all of my audiences as the primary source for law enforcement case law. To the best of my knowledge, this vital information cannot be found anywhere else. The information in this book can save agencies literally millions of dollars. This book is one of the best investments that can be made for: police agencies, attorneys in this field, or anyone training or studying in this field.”
