Po­lice need more train­ing

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Opinion -

The re­cent let­ter to the ed­i­tor re­gard­ing ac­tions of po­lice of­fi­cers in Coconut Creek and Park­land missed the point. Small cities don’t have the re­sources, nor the knowl­edge, to ed­u­cate their of­fi­cers.

Ev­ery of­fi­cer should be re­quired to spend one week a year to re­train and keep abreast of new tech­nol­ogy at a Po­lice Acad­emy. Where, in Florida, do we have an acad­emy?

The po­lice union should be de­mand­ing their of­fi­cers get the best train­ing and equip­ment pos­si­ble while also hav­ing their back.

The men and women who de­vote their lives for the com­mu­nity are not get­ting the sup­port they de­serve. Ru­vin “Rudy” Wein­gard, Coconut Creek
