Citizens academy: Week 10
May 21, 2013 - Jill Gosche
Just like that, our class ends. I am not quite sure where the 10 weeks went, but our Tiffin Police Department citizens academy is complete.
Throughout the 10-week program, we learned about firearm safety, crime scene investigation, the department's canine program and much more. I truly enjoyed every class and looked forward to every week's new adventure. I was sad to see it end. I knew it would be a tremendous experience, but it was more than I ever could have imagined.
But, our class is not quite done. The formal instruction is over, but our class had such a great experience, we have decided to keep meeting. I hate saying good-bye, so I could not be more thrilled that our class will be keeping in touch.
I would like to express my deepest appreciation to everyone at the police department who made this happen: Chief Fred Stevens for having the idea, Sgt. Jared Watson for organizing the class, Officer Becca Timm for helping behind the scenes and all other officials who taught us throughout the program. Also, thank you to my classmates for a phenomenal experience. I can truly say I've gained a dozen new friends from participating in it.
For anyone who is thinking about participating, the department probably will offer its second class a year from now. I highly recommend applying if you are able.
