Crestview area residents attend first safety academy meeting

Tom Schmoldt wanted to learn more about the department and how it plans to deal with Crestview's economic growth.

"I just want to know the workings of the department," he said. "Law enforcement is important to the growth of the community."

Glenn Goll said the academy would keep him active.

"(I did it) just to have something to do; I'm retired," he said.

Attendees at future sessions will interact with Crestview Fire Department officials and with other police officers throughout the 10-week course, organizers said.

Additionally, "they are going to be exposed to the entire judicial system from a judge to prosecution to defense," Taylor said.
