“We are grateful for the police presence along our 5k course. Our student volunteers, as well as their parents, felt more comfortable knowing students weren't alone in the park or on less trafficked streets.”
Debi Albrecht, Alumni & Development Director, Lutheran West
“It [the training] was great! It was just nice to practice tactics it's been like 4 years since I did any training with asp...we need to do more joint trainings.”
Justin Gallagher, Auxiliary Police Officer, North Olmsted
“The ASP training was very effective. Good explanations, good drills, paired up teams, sufficient hands-on, varied situations, thoroughly instructed and follow-up pop quiz. Appropriate length, no "busy work" fillers. What's not to like? It would be an appropriate familiarization class every 3-5 years. All in all, kudos to the Fairview PD training!!”
Bill Ahonen, Auxiliary Police Officer, Westlake
“Thanks for the invitation to join you for the Human Trafficking presentation last night. It was very eye opening for me. I now have a better awareness and understanding of some unimaginable things that really can and do happen.”
