Academy graduates 19

(Continued)

The room at Clinton Community College was filled with vastly different individuals with different reasons for joining the CPA, but Wednesday they united as a team committed to spreading their knowledge of what the police department does for the community.

Cpl. Pat Cullen delivered the speech calling for that commitment, encouraging all 19 newly inducted CPA members to stand proudly with their officer counterparts in spreading a message of peace and safety within the community.

“You’ve experienced what most people haven’t,” said Cullen. “You’re special now; you’re one of us. Take your experiences here and tell everyone.”

CPA graduate Linda Mangler plans to do exactly that when she joins the Citizens Police Academy Alumni and hopes she can inspire others to join the program just as others inspired her.

“I belong to the Landlords Association and several people told me that I should join the Citizens Police Academy,” she said. “It was beyond what I thought it would be. I had no inkling that we would learn so much.”

“It really opened up my eyes and I would definitely do it again,” she added.
