Citizens Police Academy

Last night was amazing. We watched a re-enactment of a DWI case. Both attorneys did an awesome job. The officers who took the stand were great too. The defendant didn’t take the stand. We ended up looking at the charge but also at the 4th Amendment. The judge told us after that if it had been a real trial, he would’ve never let the 4th Amendment question into consideration. After it was all said and done, we were able to ask questions, and that was great too. I still wonder why they don’t try more DWI cases, but it sounds like it really comes down to time and numbers. I have no idea how many cases the city attorneys try a day compared to how many plead.
This was our last class. Next week we graduate. But we’re members of the alumni organization and we’re invited back to see any classes we want to go to again. You can bet I’ll make it to hostage negotiation!
I HIGHLY recommend CPA to anyone considering it. It’s a definite eye-opening experience.
