I have always wanted to be a police officer. So when I found out that I could get hands-on experience in high school, I jumped at the chance. During the two years that I was involved with the CPFTA I learned a lot. We went on trips to test our navigational and physical skills, we learned about laws and their many different classifications, we met amazing people who had many years of on-the-job experiences and were great officers like Officer Chester and Officer Snelling. We were pushed to condition our bodies and then pushed some more, and we were motivated and inspired and encouraged by everyone for the path we had chosen. CPFTA is a great way to get on the road to success when interested in law enforcement. It will change your life.
