55 People Spend Morning Training as Officers at Inside SDPD

55 people had a rare opportunity to experience what an officer in training needs to learn as part of the Inside SDPD program. The four-hour program was offered at the Police Training Facility on the Miramar College Campus, and gave a hands-on look at the work of the dedicated officers of the San Diego Police Department.

Sponsored by SDG&E and organized by the San Diego Police Foundation, Inside SDPD is a unique behind-the-scenes experience that gives community members the chance to walk in the shoes of a police officer. San Diegans will participate in use-of-force training, which includes driving simulation, SWAT entry, vehicle stop, and firearms training activities. They will also meet K-9 Unit officers and their canine partners, all while experiencing first-hand what it’s like to be a cop.
