Long Story Short – At­tend­ing Po­lice Train­ing

The Dundalk Eagle - - BY THE PEOPLE - By DEL­E­GATE BOB LONG

I was hon­ored to be in­vited and have an op­por­tu­nity to visit the Bal­ti­more County Po­lice train­ing fa­cil­ity at CCBC Dundalk.

I was given the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in sev­eral train­ing sce­nar­ios. it was one of the most in­for­ma­tive and in­tense site vis­its that I have ever at­tended. This event gave me the op­por­tu­nity and insight of the vig­or­ous in­tense on­go­ing train­ing that is be­ing taught to Cadets and also sea­soned po­lice of­fi­cers. They are taught de es­ca­la­tion skills that pre­pare them to serve and pro­tect all the peo­ple in this county.

I am proud and grate­ful of th­ese he­roes and their com­mit­ment as they are will­ing to sac­ri­fice their lives to pro­tect us. We must re­mem­ber ev­ery­day when they leave their homes of the great sac­ri­fices their fam­i­lies en­dure each day.

We are now liv­ing in some tur­bu­lent and stress­ful times. We must put an end to this vi­o­lence that is tak­ing place in this great coun­try. We all need to take a step back and come to­gether to work through the prob­lems. The un­law­ful ri­ot­ing and loot­ing must stop. De­fund­ing the po­lice only will only ex­ac­er­bate this on­go­ing prob­lem. We need more well­trained po­lice of­fi­cers.
