The Gulfport Police Department has graciously invited citizens to learn more about the department's operations, policies, procedures and more! The Citizens Police Academy is an 8-week course with class time, demonstrations and a ride along. Now, during my first week, I wrote about learning what it takes to apply to become an officer for Gulfport. During the second week we learned about three topics: GPD Records and Crime Analysis, Communications and K9 Operations. Be sure to check out my second video; it includes three demonstrations from K9 Cosmo.
During week three of the class we learned about:
- School Resource Officers/Gangs
- Police Explorer Program
- Investigative Services Division and Sex Offenders
Check out this week's video to hear more about what I learned!
