Carolyn’s note: It’s a sign of the 21st Century times in May, 2018 that the Tucson Police Dept. has to offer courses like these (next one is on May 24, which incidentally is already booked full).  Stay tuned for the next one.  I’ve already posted a few of these courses at the TPD West Side Service Center on our image Calendar (since November, 2017).

Then the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas just happened last week Friday. 10 innocent people (mostly high school students) were killed and 13 more were injured. Now we tragically know the answer to the April 19 “Who Will be Next?” Memorial service  at the UA Mall.

Where do we feel safe nowadays?  Only at the airports and in court houses where there are security guards and screening machines for metal objects/weapons.

Applicants sought for new Tucson Police Community Advisory Council

Tucson Police Community Advisory Council

“The Tucson Police Department (TPD) is seeking applicants for a new Community Advisory Council.  The Council’s mission will be to promote community involvement in shaping the policies and priorities of the TPD.

The TPD is committed to working closely with the people of Tucson to advance public safety and neighborhood wellbeing. The Community Advisory Council will assist the TPD in gathering public input on new policies or initiatives.

The Council will help ensure that members of the public have ongoing and meaningful input in how their communities are policed.
