Popular “Community Classroom” Series Continues Throughout 2017
The Greensboro Police Department (GPD) is continuing its popular “Community Classroom” programs that consist of educational seminars focusing on different topics of interest to community members. Launched in 2016, the interactive seminars address areas of police work that are frequently requested by the public.
“We enjoy sharing different aspects of police work with our residents,” said Police Chief Wayne Scott. “The seminars in 2017 offer a good variety of topics. Some seminars highlight our training. Some illustrate the challenges of police work. Yet others allow us to share our expertise in relevant issues. Most importantly, all of the classes offer people a better understanding of how we serve them.”
Seminars scheduled so far for 2017 are:
- March 29, 5:45-7 pm - Teen Dating Violence and Internet Safety (open to all ages)
