Captain Shawn Bain


Shawn Bain retired after serving over 30 years with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office in Columbus, Ohio, an agency responsible for serving a population of over one million citizens. He has been assigned many different areas of responsibility in Law Enforcement including the jail division, patrol division, canine unit, SWAT, and Special Investigations conducting vice and narcotics investigations. He has also served as a supervisor in all of these areas.


Shawn's expertise in Law Enforcement lies within drug investigations. He has 20 years of experience in the drug field. He has served as the lead undercover detective or supervisor on over 3,000 undercover drug buys and participated in over 1,000 drug search warrants both at the local and federal levels. He has assisted in supervising several Federal Title III wire taps and State wire taps involving large scale drug trafficking organizations.


Shawn has been assigned as Task Force Commander of a large multi-agency drug task force with a focus on disrupting/dismantling large-scale drug trafficking organizations within the United States coming from Mexico.


Shawn has found his passion the last 14 years in drug education. With the experience he gained while interviewing or interrogating thousands of drug traffickers and drug abuses, he has come to the realization that enforcement of drug crimes is not the solution to the drug epidemic plaguing our country today. Instead, the answer lies with education to change the culture of drug abuse in our society. This passion for drug education is evident during his instruction. He has lectured throughout the United States at a variety of national conferences and seminars.
