Back to School

The last 2 days I have been off and street and in the classroom. Every year we are taken from patrol and sent to the training section for 3 days to be bored to death so that if we screw up the department can say we trained him on such and such date to do it the opposite way.

I must say that the whole thing is not completely boring, like today we spent a quarter of the day doing use of force scenarios. It's always fun to go hands on with people, shoot some sim rounds and use the simulators.

But the rest of the days are: Report writing, diversity, ethics, upgrades to the police system and mental health.

There was one session about sources that was very interesting because it's something that I have been focusing on the last year.

Well off to bed soon, another full day of training tomorrow....I find sitting in the classroom really takes it out of you.



  1. Yours sounds wayyyyyy better than mine. I wouldn't mind using force 'training' with one of the girls I went with. Good luck with day 3!

  2. On day 1 we had some IES show up for the 2nd half of the day, I was happy it was 3 dispatchers that I would put in myy top 5 if i had to rank them, had some good laughs..
