Shawnee Police Department - Gordon Cooper Technology Center
THEN: A strong working partnership benefitting both organizations. Shawnee Police Department provides local and state officer training and a security benefit to the technology center with uniformed officers in marked cars on campus. The partnership offers skills training with
- Scenarios using simulators for emergency driving and use-of-force.
- Self defense, stun gun use, search warrant service and affidavit writing.
- Firearms maintenance.
- Supervisor liability.
NOW: The training center is a hub of regional law enforcement training. Because of this partnership, the SPD and state law enforcement agencies recently used the GCTC campus as an assembly point and base of operations for a large countywide methamphetamine operation raid, resulting in 100 officers making 45 arrests.
