Tallahassee, Florida (Press Release) --
The Tallahassee Police Department is accepting applications for the fall 2010 TAC Students High School Leadership Program, which begins October 11, 2010. TAC Students is designed to prepare high school students to be leaders in every phase of their lives. It is a program inspired and led by the Tallahassee Police Department’s Tactical Apprehension and Control Team (TAC).
Students who successfully complete the TAC Students program will experience four challenging classes led by police officers and other professionals:
1. Decision Making
2. Defining Relationships
3. Planning for the Future
4. Becoming a Leader
TAC Students originated because officers at the Tallahassee Police Department recognized a need to reach-out to our community and help mold the leaders of tomorrow.
The Tallahassee Police Department’s TAC Team is a group of highly trained officers who respond to volatile situations. When the TAC Team receives a call-out, the officers never know exactly what they are about to encounter. It is through training, skill, and teamwork that they have the confidence to overcome any situation. These men and women are the best at what they do because they prepare.
TAC Students is not designed to recruit future law enforcement officers, but rather to have a positive influence on students who will work in all areas of our community. Students never know exactly what they will face in life. It is through training and achievements that students will gain the confidence to brace and overcome any situation.
There are a limited number of openings on the fall TAC Students Team. The process is highly competitive. Any interested high school age student or parent of a student should contact Investigator Danny Jeter at 891-4208 or by e-mail at Danny.Jeter@talgov.com.
