A Wet Rainy Yucky Day....

Hello dear world

Good evening. It was a soaking wet rainy day today in my neck of the woods and I had to go to work today. Work kept me pretty busy but it was a work day.

Anywho...you might want to know that my mom and I headed off to our Citizens Police Academy Class which started at 6:30pm at the Police Headquarters right after I got home from work which is close to my job. Today we had (2) classes in the same room.

The first class we had was about the K-9 Unit and yes the K-9 Dogs were brought into the class one by one. Two of our classmates got to be involved in showing how the K-9 Dogs help to apprehend suspects which was quite something. There was a class next door to ours called "The Explorers" which is a class with young adults and who were allowed to come into our class as we were taught about the K-9 Unit. Let me tell you that the K-9 Dogs are huge and they are given responses in German and Slavic since the dogs are imported. Before the dogs were brought into the class we were taught the difference between Full Service K-9 and Single Purpose K-9. We also learned about the K-9 Dogs who are trained to detect various explosive odors such as gunpowder to C-4. The class was quite interesting indeed I learned quite a lot about the K-9 Unit.

The other class we had covered the Narcotics Unit taught by one of the agents who runs the Narcotics Division. We learned how the Narcotics Unit is responsible for the Investigation of violations of the State and Federal Controlled Substance Laws. We also learned about their methods of investigation they use including a Surveillance Search Warrant, their Undercover Operations and their Wiretap's and how the Narcotics Unit also use the K-9 Unit in their work.I can tell you that the teacher we had was quite good and he taught us for quite a while.

We didn't get out of class until 10:00pm. My dear world I have to say that I am learning a lot in the class and I am glad that I signed up for the class. There is so much I am learning about. Next week we will be getting a first hand look at how fingerprints are found because our class will cover Investigations and the C.S.I. We will be getting dirty next week so we were warned to NOT wear fancy clothes since we will be getting a hands on required participation class next week which I can't wait for. Our next class is Thursday February 28.

So my dear world how was your day ? Did you have to work today ? I do hope that you didn't have to go out in any nasty weather like I did. That's all for now. I'll talk to you again later.

Bye

Your class sounds VERY interesting! I would have enjoyed learning all of that. My work uses K-9 dogs in the security dept. They are beautiful animals.
Have a restful night.

They offer much the same thing here.
It sounds like you've really been paying attention.

I read today that more Americans are addicted to prescription drugs rather than banned substances. You should mention it in your next narcotics class, they may have an insight into it.
