Status of the 71st:
The Corpus Christi Police Department 71st Academy session ended week 2 with a boom! The Corpus Christi Police Department Bomb Squad delivered an 8 hour block of instruction on explosives awareness. The purpose of the class was to train the Cadets to properly and safely respond to bomb threats and reports for suspicious items. The Bomb Squad then provided a demonstration for the cadets at the Corpus Christi Police Bomb Range in order to exhibit the dangers of explosive materials officers may encounter on patrol.
The Cadets were assigned to read Chapters 3,4, and 5 of the Corpus Christi Police General Rules Manual for homework over the weekend. Chapter 3 covers Supervisor Responsibilities; Chapter 4 explains Uniforms, Appearance, and Equipment; and Chapter 5 provides the standard for Conduct and Performance.
