This was mentioned in Feb, didn't seem to generate much interest!
Are you also suggesting a platform for introducing OC education with Peirce County, or as a go and learn about the Sheriff’s department?
If with an OC agenda I don’t believe it’s proper, IMMHO. Realistically, it’s not an issue the effects the masses in the county, yet, and I don’t believe the county would justify the expense of incorporating OC education in the near future, if that were partial motive for attending. They have specific topics as listed on the site, the program participants are not signing up too be part of a focus group, commission, or any policy advisory board. They are signing up too hear about topics as the program curriculum outlines, as presented by those facilitating.
There’s no doubt topics will afford time for questions, like their topic of constitutional law, but don’t expect large amounts of time exhausted on a complaint, question, or concern surrounding OC. It’s called a side-bar, or see-me after class. Face it, this is a structured community service, with budgets, timelines, and objectives.
I don’t believe we’ll see “At the completion of this course the student shall be able to draw a firearm from their safe, beneath their pillow, or vehicle glove box, holster said firearm, walk about the streets, shops, private businesses, and authorized government buildings because the citizens of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department has been duly educated in the right’s of the OC community.
I say, by all means go for anyone out there interested, not that what I say matters. Take it for what it is, free community education with a “Course Outline” don’t be disappointed when your passion is not their passion at the academy.
