The St Francis County Sheriff’s Department is proud to announce the addition of a new part time deputy with the department. Daniel Puder, CEO of the nonprofit organization My Life My Power, started working with the St Francis County Sheriff’s Department recently. He will be on patrol along with his main duty of working within our community and youth to launch a program which will increase the Emotional Intelligence to create empowerment to decrease the bullying and drug usage our county.

“We are excited to bring Daniel Puder, a high level professional athlete, national speaker and trainer into our organization. We are excited to accomplish great things to help the youth and those who can benefit from the My Life My Power EQ & Leadership program,” commented Sheriff Bobby May.

“I have always wanted to be involved in law enforcement and have graduated from the FBI, DEA and ATF civilian academies but am really excited to officially be in law enforcement as a sworn deputy with the St Francis County Sheriff’s Department,” stated Puder on working with Sheriff May and the Sheriff’s Department. “My non-profit organization has trained law enforcement agencies around the country and now I am getting a better perspective of how they view the things they encounter.” 

In addition to Puder’s non-profit My Life My Power program that is known throughout the world, Puder is also known for being an undefeated MMA fighter and winning the WWE Million Dollar Tough Enough Contest. 

“I started building a relationship with Puder about 10 years ago when I was a chief of police in Oklahoma and I know his programs have been proven to help youth. After talking to Sheriff May and Puder, I knew it would be a recipe for success by bringing him into our area and we look forward to helping our entire area by helping our youth,” added Captain Eddie Adamson of the St Francis County Sheriff’s Department. 

Puder has been a presenter on the popular Ted Talk media program and has a top ranked Podcast called “Significance Breeds Success” and recently recorded two episodes of Dr. Oz talking about his program and how he is building communities to empower youth and change their lives.

This week Puder will be working with the Sheriff’s Department talking to the school districts in the county as well as other stakeholders to garner more support in bringing the programs to St Francis County. “I am excited to be able to talk to the local Rotary Club, School Officials, and local students as well as get to know more of the community since I am going to be back in this area regularly doing programs and working with the Sheriff’s Department.
