Want to know what it's like to be an Odessa Police Officer? Do you have questions about what they do? Here's your chance to get some firsthand knowledge and get those questions answered.
“I think that today the police need more support from their community than they ever have," said Jason Spenser, Citizens Police Academy Graduate. “You could learn about everything there is to learn about OPD," said Corporal Steve LeSueur, OPD. “People have no idea how hard it is not only to become a police officer, but how hard it is to stay a police officer.”
“Getting to know these officers, that they are everyday regular people that get up to do the best they can to protect their community," said Spenser. “I think that we all want to have our gripes and complaints, but you have to be able to get up and get involved to make it happen and starting with the CPA class just to learn is that first step.”
