Les Kjemhus is a 30 year veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). He is a recognized expert in North America in the field of indoor cannabis cultivation investigations. He has conducted hundreds of indoor grow investigations in Canada and has testified as an expert in this field in both Canada and the USA. He has cultivated indoor marijuana under license for the RCMP on a number of occasions to train investigators and in an undercover capacity. As a result, he has very unique, “hands-on”, experience about marijuana cultivation to pass on to law enforcement trainees. Les has taught this subject on over 350 occasions for the RCMP, the DEA, US Dept of Justice, Midwest Counterdrug Training Center (MCTC), Western Regional Counterdrug Training Center (WRCT), Northeast Counterdrug Training Center (NCTC), Mid Atlantic Narcotic Training Academy (MANTA) as well as numerous State and local law enforcement agencies. Inspector Kjemhus helped develop the DEA’s “Marijuana Cultivation Investigator’s Handbook” and wrote and publish a book entitled “Two Way Street – Parents, Kids and Drugs”. Inspector Kjemhus was one of the first police officers in Canada to utilize thermal imaging in successful detection of indoor marijuana grow sites and, as a result, he was selected by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Domestic Cannabis Eradication and Suppression Program (DCE/SP)to instruct indoor marijuana grow investigations and thermal imaging for many years across the USA.
