All swearing-in ceremonies are special but every once in a while one tugs at your heart strings a little more than others. Yesterday, at Officer Benning's swearing-in she was surprised to find out that her son, who has been stationed over seas and has not seen in over 2 years, would be the one pinning her badge. #ComingHome #MotherSon #Military #SwearingIn #IPDCares #Family #VolumeUp #JoinIPD

The police students had their mandatory monthly meeting today with Director Lane and the Academy Drill Instructors.

Sgt. Bill Duggan (Maynard PD) taught Drill & Ceremony to the group for an hour. It was a review for the upperclassmen but new for the freshmen.

Drill & Ceremony is taught in the Academy because police officers are often required to move in large groups - in an orderly manner - at such events as parades and funerals. It is also taught to instill pride, discipline, habits of precision and response to leader’s orders.

The police students looked really squared away today and performed very well! Great job!

01/27/2020

Reminder to Police Students:
We have our mandatory monthly Police Student meeting tomorrow in the McKay B Gym from 3:30p-4:30p. We will be practicing Drill & Ceremony so plan accordingly. You can access the gym through the front B entrance of McKay. Student Leaders will be positioned at the door to show you where to go once you enter.

Reminder to Student Leaders:
You will have a meeting with me and the Drill Instructors immediately following the student meeting from 4:30p-5:30p in McKay C198.

Thank you!

The number one protective factor for a child or young adult with risk factors is one caring adult in his/her life. This could be a parent or a grandparent or a teacher or a minister or a coach...or a member of law enforcement. This gentleman credits a Correction Officer with saving his life.

We educate and train our police students - before they even enter the Academy - that they could be that one caring adult who could make all the difference in a youth’s life. It’s both an awesome responsibility and a privilege.
