Many thanks to Sergeant Kevin Wallace for his willingness to speak to our Fall 2012 class.   He has presented material to my students for 17 years now.  And this year, an added bonus: Officer Joey Valdez accompanied him and together, they co-presented material related to officers’ duties, dangers, and rewards.  (Officer Valdez actually took the class when he was an undergraduate a couple of years ago!)  The two officers provided factual information and anecdotal stories, illustrating how the GPD’s selection, recruitment, and training processes are constantly evolving and improving.  Students were particularly intrigued by the hands-on demonstration related to DUIs.
