Education seminars completed
Submitted By Officer Gene Smith, Milpitas PD
The 2011 Milpitas PACES (Police and Community Education Seminar) Citizens Academy concluded on May 18 with 19 participants successfully graduating from the program. This session of PACES was coordinated by Officer Asim Qureshi who was responsible for setting up instructors/topics for each session and all logistical aspects of the program.
Comprised of enthusiastic community members as well as city volunteers, sessions revealed the inner workings of the Milpitas Police Department. Topics included dispatch procedures, investigations, crime scene, traffic, K-9 operations and a driving under the influence discussion. Participants also toured the police department facility and had an opportunity to participate in a baton/handcuffing exercise.
The ultimate goal of the PACES program is to give citizens a better understanding of the Police Department and improve a partnership with our community. If you are interested in participating in the PACES program, another class will be held in 2012.
