academy gives students an inside look at the police department. This week's class
was all about the special response unit and personal defense.

tools, and the training to handle high-risk warrants and hostage situations
quickly and with minimal force.
they've gone through this, and they may not know much about a special response
team, they may not even know that we have one here at the Maumee Police
Division, but I think after they sit through this and can see exactly what
those officers' abilities are, they're going to be very proud of the community,"

the Special Response Unit, self-defense is a worst-case scenario precaution,
but knowledge of both can make a difference.
second part of Tuesday's class discussed and exercised that ability. Police
self-defense and close-quarter combat tactics were taught. To Instructor
Stratton, a class like this can provide that inside look and much more.

and how well, and maybe how they could use that in a situation they may get
into," he said.
week, the class will learn about traffic stops and OVI enforcement.
