OPD Citizens Academy, More Than I Expected

It's been a few weeks since my graduation from the Owensboro Police Department's Citizens Academy and I got our class photo picture from our instructor. I've always had an interest in law enforcement and knew I just had to attend the Citizens Academy when it began in August. Now, even thou I was excited, the 12 week course seemed a little much at first. Now that it's over, we were all wanting more time with the class.

Here are some of the most impressive things I took away from my short time with the OPD.

I Tried To Get Off The Floor While Wearing The OPD’s 90lb Bomb Squad Suit… It Didn’t Go Well [VIDEO]

Last night, at the Citizens Academy with the Owensboro Police Department, was Hazardous Devices Unit night.... aka,The Bomb Squad. Officer Flory and Officer Alsip spoke with our class about all of their training, job duties and even showed off different types of (non-active) explosives and gear. Being the closet nerd that I am, I found it really fascinating.

The amount of knowledge that they must acquire is crazy impressive. And that suit... y'all, that beast weighs 90 pounds! So, naturally, I put the suit on and tried to get up from laying on the floor. How did it go? Not great, haha! Take a look...

My Firing Range Experience [VIDEO]

To say that I've enjoyed my experience in the Owensboro Police Department's Citizens Academy so far, is a complete understatement. It has been really cool getting a better understanding of what and why the OPD does what they do. Last week, my classmates and I got to go to the firing range, where the officers maintain their yearly training, and try out shooting the targets ourselves.

How do you think I did?
