Frank Lowe

Why do students enjoy listening to Frank Lowe teach? Because, with over 35 years of police experience he brings a wisdom and perspective that is hard to match. Frank spent 30 years with the Oakland Police Department where he retired as a Captain. Frank’s experience as an investigator, working in one of toughest cities in California, made him an obvious choice to teach our Modern Interview and Interrogation course.

Frank has a lifelong commitment to helping students like you be successful. He is a seasoned instructor with experience as a police academy instructor and coordinator, in-service instructor and community college instructor. While serving as an investigator and a detective supervisor, Frank learned the intricacies of how to effectively gather information. He has honed that experience into simple concepts he can teach you.

Frank is not one of those guys that used to be a cop a long time ago but then just retired to the golf course. After 30 years with Oakland PD, Frank went on to become the Chief of the Federal Reserve Police in San Francisco. After leaving the Federal Reserve, Frank wanted to continue to serve and also stay current on what officers like you are facing. He currently serves as a reserve officer for both the Oakland and Santa Clara Police Departments in California and is a sworn welfare fraud investigator for the City and County of San Francisco.

In addition to his decades of experience, he holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice Administration from San Jose State University, a master’s degree in human Behavior from National University, and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. But do not let all the experience and education fool you, Frank is a down to earth guy and a cop just like you. He has dedicated his life to police work and helping cops be successful.
