    I attended the first Academy, it was fantastic. It is amazing how much you do not understand about police work until you attend one of these Academies. Police officers place themselves in harms way to protect all of us.

    The Academy students are volunteers, upthecreek, and don’t get a benefit package. What they do get is a better understanding of their community and how their police department and the criminal justice system operates. You should consider attending. It may change some of your opinions about the services provided by your government and the employees that provide those services.

      Chief, I don’t think that upthecreek wants to be confused by any actual facts.

      Sorry Chief… I just thought they should know Just in-case they wanted to pursue a law enforcement career.
