Update from POST

By Joelyn Hansen

Remember Officer Baird? He’s one of our newest patrol officers that was sworn in recently. He’s currently attending the Idaho POST academy.

We received an update on what they’ve completed in the first week. Thought perhaps it would be fun to share with our readers.

The Patrol AcadBaird Swearing-in 182-2emy #181, which graduates Oct. 21, spent the first week covering drill & ceremony, report writing, use of force, effective communication, and the lecture portions of firearms, defensive tactics, and marksmanship.

They also got their first introduction to scenarios and a full day of arrest techniques.

This class took their first test, covering topics from last week as well as some of the pre-academy course work. Everyone passed and the class average was 86.5%. We love to brag, so we’ll tell you that Officer Baird scored a 97%. We’ve heard it was the highest score…..but we don’t know that for sure. We’re proud of him either way.

Stay tuned for more updates!
