Loving father to two beautiful God given daughters.
Started my career in law enforcement in 2000 at Greene County Sheriff's office. In 2002 left Greene County Sheriff's office and went to work for the Farmville Police Dept. and was a FTO and patrol officer until recruited by the Pitt County Sheriff's office in 2010 to work on the community impact division. Joined the Pitt County Sheriff's office Special Response Team when the team was re-started in early 2015. Since on the team, I have been assigned as a combat medic on the entry team and am presently assigned to the entry team and as a sniper since 2017. I am currently a Master Deputy assigned to location and observation of potential violators throughout the County.
Currently a supervisor at Brunswick County Sheriff's Office.
I am A. A. Boone, founder and president of Specialized Realistic Training, Inc. . I am a veteran of the U.S. Navy. I am a retired Police Officer with the Raleigh Police Department. I served 17 ½ years as a full-time S.W.A.T. Operator. I am a true S.W.A.T. Master Operator that serves with a passion and love my SWAT brothers. After leaving the unit I served 6 years as a Tactical Trainer at the Police training center and continued to conduct training for the S.W.A.T. unit at the Raleigh Police Department during those 6 years until I retired.
I have over15 years as an Adjunct instructor for the North Carolina Justice Academy, former President of the North Carolina Tactical Officers Association and the former Director of the Southeastern S.W.A.T. Association for North Carolina. I am still active with the NCTOA in the training division as one of the training coordinators.
As a former S.W.A.T. Operator, I take all training serious and believe in training with a passion. The company S.R.T., INC. conducts courses for law enforcement agencies throughout North Carolina, agencies from South Carolina and Georgia. There are numerous courses conducted through over 20 universities and community colleges across the state of North Carolina.
All the training offered from S.R.T. INC. is realistic training and designed to train the operator how to fight, stay in the fight and win the fight. This training is intense and demanding. It is structured to build the officers confidence, determination, motivation, safety and discipline on tactics and survival instincts. Training is also designed to train each and every operator on never giving up and quitting is not an option.
