This is a town about 15 miles from me in the next county. I'm not sure what my take is on this. Is this something good or is it part of The New World Order.

    Public Relations tour. Our city does this as well, meet and greet, see some of the fun toys,(RANGE TIME!!!), learn about what is expected of the officers etc... No big deal. It is a good way to meet the local PD and build up good PR.

    Police Academy?!? I vote for Zee to play the part of Tackleberry..............

    Same program in the last city in which I lived...nothing dark or subversive...nobody gets deputized...simply an opportunity for folks to learn something about the law enforcement field...

    My town had something similar. You ride around for part of a shift, get to go to the station and see how things are done, learn about the laws and how police enforce them, etc. PR stuff, nothing sinister.

    Yep. It is a great opportunity. I went through one and learned quite a bit.
