Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) received a Law Enforcement Training grant from the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC). CPTC received $21,151 to be used for essential training for our police personnel (which includes use of force and de-escalation) to ensure that they are full prepared for whatever they may encounter. Ethan Johnson, Campus Police Chief for CPTC states “this grant funding will provide for the purchase of much needed active shooter and de-escalation training equipment to enhance the training and preparedness of the CPTC Police Department and surrounding law enforcement agencies. Our POST certified instructors will assist local law enforcement with this training as we work together to respond to these critical incidents”
The Law Enforcement Training grant is awarded on a competitive basis and CPTC is one of only three Technical colleges to receive the grant.
