    I had the pleasure of taking the Police Academy last year. It is fantastic. We had around 20 people in our class and the ages ranged from 19 to old. We looked at many phases of police work and I came away with a whole new respect for the King County Sheriffs Office. Some of the classes are unforgettable. The day we went to the shooting range and fired all sorts of weapons is a real highlight. We spent the evening at the 911 center and saw what happens when there is an emergency. Nicki, Henry Mclaughen and the whole staff do a great job. I encourage you to make the committment and sign up.
