You've Been Flocked!

The Terrell Citizens Police Academy Alumni have been busy with a fundraiser. For a donation of $20 they will place a flock of plastic pink flamingos on the lawn of a victim of your choosing for 48 hours.

This house was recently flocked.

Corporal Jackson with the Terrell Police Department let me know that they are in the planning stages for another Academy class, hopefully in the fall.

From the Alumni website:
The Citizen's Police Academy provides a look into the operations of the Terrell Police Department. Its purpose is to provide information to citizens about law enforcement so that they may make informed judgments about the men and women that serve them while these same men and women learn what the citizens anticipate as their role in the community.

Through the sharing of information, citizens learn about law enforcement while law enforcement learns from the citizens. It basically a win-win situation, everyone, both citizens and law enforcement, learns more about each other. Together, they form a team where they both serve their community.

If you live in Terrell and see the class being offered, sign up, get involved.

Flocking! I wonder why I didn't think of that? A great idea.

Citizens academies are a great idea. I hope they do ride-a-alongs with the officers. I'm sure most residents would get a real eye opener. That's a bargain -- just $20 for a flock of flamingoes! Cute idea...and fun capture.
