Citizens Police Academy Fall 2017 "Blue Backers" On Monday evening the Holly Springs Police 2017 Fall CPA session came to a successful close. A grand group joined the Citizen Police Academy as concerned citizens. Last night they departed as Holly Springs "Blue Backers". Each prevailed through open concern for our nation and communities, legal and Constitutional reviews, domestic violence problem solving, laws of protection, strengthening the home-front, crime scene processing, patrol methodology, responsibilities of citizenship, and much more. Even while riding as "co-pilot" with an on-duty officer, these troupers showed themselves to be trustworthy in all respects. We're all in this together, and we know that we count on a "Blue Backer". Welcome.

Everybody Trains Even the Chief? Especially the Chief. Chief Mike Carswell putting his defensive skills through the paces.
