State College Constable Selected for Federal Law enforcement Training

Local Constable Selected for Federal Law enforcement Training

On January 16-19, the Pennsylvania State Constable from Ferguson Township will be attending an active shooter training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Cheltenham, MD.  Constable Nedd will be attending this training alongside about twenty-five other law enforcement officers from Washington DC’s Metropolitan Police Department, the US Capitol Police and other law enforcement agencies from the east coast.

The Active Shooter Threat Training Program is designed to teach and qualify law enforcement officers to successfully handle an active threat event.  It is an intensive training program that covers a variety of tactical subject matter including individual and team movement, and operational formation.

Council Nedd is also the rector of St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills.

I’m Back

Sorry everyone.  I have been away for a lot longer than I had planned.

In December I was busy preparing for my constable training.  January to the beginning of March, I was busy doing my basic training.  Since I completed my course work and earned my certification I have been busy actually learning the job and working.

I have been incredibly fortunate that I have gotten as much work as I have serving as a constable.  Some of my classmates, haven’t gotten very many warrants to serve.  I seem to be settling into a bit of a groove, and I am going to purpose to make more time to write… and do other projects.  Hopefully, I will have more to tell about this soon.

By the way, the featured photo is with me and some of my classmates immediately after we completed the last phase of our training for certification, which was firearms.  I really like, admire and miss my classmates. I completed my constable training at the Temple University Criminal Justice Training Program.  I wanted to complete my training as quickly as possible, so I traveled to Philadelphia, which was the very first available class.  Most of my classmates  are from the Southeastern part of the state, so it’s highly unlikely that I will see most of them again.  However, they do hold a special place in my heart.

I need to get back to my sermon for tomorrow, Trinity Sunday.  I will be talking about Nicodemus.
