Media Invitation to Training Day

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 4:00 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]


The Colorado Springs Police Department is currently training 45 new recruits.  The Training Academy will be conducting a Media Day on Friday, November 15th from 8:30 – 11:30 am.


Members of the media are encouraged to attend if you want to compile file footage regarding the physical training our recruits undergo. 


One member from each media outlet will be able to participate in “Shoot – Don’t Shoot” scenarios.  This will provide you with situational awareness as it relates to split second decisions our officers are required to make during Deadly Force encounters.


Training Academy staff members will be available for questions.
