SWTC Academy

October 3, 2016

During this field trip residents and myself along with Professor Nemmitz, Amber Hoffman, and Nick Drott journeyed to the Southwest Technical College Public Safety Complex.  Here Police Academy Instructors and Recruits showed the members of the LLC how to properly handle and shoot firearms, proper handcuff techniques, and a few lucky residents got to drive the squad cars and see how maneuvers were done in them.  Members of the LLC then got to handcuff each other with training handcuffs and shoot Glock 17’s.

This provided a great opportunity for residents to experience first hand what the police academy, and what policing in general will and can entail.
