Starkville PD are offering a taste of officer training to Oktibbeha County residents this June.
Citizen trainees will spend 10 days learning about police protocol and operations, witness a S.W.A.T. demonstration, and even get to fire a handgun at the SPD firing range.
Participants must be over the age of 21. You will be required to pass a background check and not be exempt from possession a firearm.
Fans of Johnny Cash are encouraged to apply.
