As a professional speaker, trainer and coach, Charlie is focused on helping others, especially those in management positions, build personal and professional resilience to enhance leadership success. Charlie spent 27 years with the Tustin Police Department in Orange County, CA working his way up through the ranks to become the 14th police chief in the department’s 90 year history. Throughout his career, Charlie worked a variety of assignments, including patrol officer, field training officer, narcotics detective, gang detective sergeant, lieutenant, captain and ultimately the chief of police.

Review by Jack S.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 16, 2022From San Diego, CA

Chief Celano is a skilled orator who delivered a powerful presentation to our small unit before the start of the Holiday season. He shared his powerful personal story of recovery from dealing with life's stressors. I would highly recommend Charles for companies that want to demonstrate that there is more to life than working endlessly in the office or out in the field. Rest assured if you book Charles you will not be disappointed by the quality of his presentation. 10/10 would recommend!

Charles Celano, Police Chief (Ret.):

Lt. Commander, thank you so much for your kind comments and for being such a great host. The event you put on for your guardsman is so important for their health and wellbeing. Thank you again!
