Program Description
The Daily Grind in Blue-Black

We’ll dress a LEO, give her some weapons on her utility belt, and describe how those can be used. We will take her through a typical day, and then perhaps a not so typical one to discuss who handles what on a crime scene. We will briefly discuss training and where you can easily research training for yourselves. As usual, questions are welcomed.
