Emphasizing a quality training program is a priority to the City of Goose Creek Police Department because of the highly visible nature of police officers. This, combined with the large amount of interaction with citizens, business persons, and the general public, is why officer training is so important.
Public Trust & Confidence
An educated and well-trained officer will conduct himself/herself in a positive, professional manner. This focus on training has created a professional image and a reputation of public trust and confidence that has become the trademark of both the department and the city.
Officers receive training in a host of topics, ranging from legal and procedural guidelines to qualifications with weapons carried by the officers. Training is an ongoing function within the agency. Each officer is required to requalify and recertify on a regular basis.
