I am currently part of the Citizens Police Academy. I completed an overnight ride-out in Charlie with Keane Richardson. I want to thank Keane (and the various other patrol officers we came in contact with that night) for making me feel welcome. Keane encouraged me to ask questions and clearly communicated everything I should know for a successful and safe rideout. Keane was very professional regardless of the situation, and treated each citizen with respect regardless of the circumstances.
The Citizen Police Academy and the Friday rideout have sincerely increased my appreciation for APD. I am proud to live in a city with such a professional group of men and women serving as law enforcement officers.
