Peace Officers Gather For Training

How well law enforcement protects you and your property often depends on their training. About 150 peace officers who belong to the East Texas Peace Officers Association are on specialized training. The annual convention addresses topics that concern patrol officers to criminal investigators.

Mike Claude, ETPOA President said, "We've got FBI agents that teach hostage negotiation, the state game biologist from the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife is here, Texas Rangers. We've got a wide variety of training this year."

Vendors are also there showing off the latest in law enforcement equipment.
