During the program, officers participate in classes focusing on: the role of a supervisor, leadership, resolving conflict, managing diversity, monitoring officer performance, professional image, legal issues for supervisors, ethics, interpersonal communication, effective written communication, making decisions, solving problems, managing critical incidents, public speaking, emotional survival, budgeting, media relations, and other related subjects.

During the DOCJT graduation ceremony for Class 491, Officer Daniel Pinet was awarded the Firearms Proficiency Award for scoring a 100 on all three courses of fire, which included the handgun, rifle, and shotgun. Officer Pinet and Officer Spencer Arroyo were also presented with the Recruit of Distinction Award. This award was given in recognition of those recruits who received no disciplinary actions, no failures in any tested area, an evaluation rating of acceptable in every category, and overall GPA of 92.5% or higher on all five academic tests, participation in a community project, and actively promoted teamwork in the classroom environment. 16 recruits in total received this recognition.

Officer Lee spent some time with Amanda Williams' 3rd-grade class at Warren Elementary earlier this week. Officer Lee spent time answering questions about how to become a police officer and providing safety tips to the students. We are glad to be able to spend time in the community and watch these young students grow into positive influences in their community.

Each day this week, we plan to recognize a Telecommunicator within the Department in observation of National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. Today we have C.L. Hall! I've been with WKUPD for 7 years. I like to interact with new students who may be away from home for the first time. I feel that I can help with their transition whenever possible. I like my job because it gives me an opportunity to learn and grow as well as pass on knowledge to others. My job pushes me to think outside the box to solve problems. Outside of work I like to eat and learn about computers.
