The Training Unit provides Department members with quality, contemporary training that serves to enhance their performance, knowledge, skills, and abilities. This enables us to provide more effective and efficient police service to our community and to promote each officer’s personal safety and well-being. In order to accomplish these objectives, we conduct comprehensive in-service training programs on an ongoing basis. Some of the High-Liability topics covered during these sessions include Firearms Proficiency, Defensive Tactics, Pursuit Driving, and Scenario-Based Practical Applications. In addition, our members receive advanced professional development training throughout their careers on such topics as Legal Issues, Domestic Violence, Terrorism, Stress Reduction, Management, and Supervision. The Training Section also supervises the academy training of new police recruits and offers periodic community educational programs through its Civilian Police Academy.
