TDP training

The Thomson Police Department is continuing its efforts to ensure that local officers are continually practicing and learning solid law enforcement skills.

The most recent effort brought Senior Public Safety Risk Consultant David Trotter to Thomson to provide three days of training entitled "De-escalation and Response to Resistance," what is commonly referred to as deadly force training. Thanks to Local Government Risk Management Services, which insures cities and counties, the training only cost the participating departments the time for their officers to attend.
