Today is #InternationalMentoringDay! Today we celebrate the worldwide power of mentoring inspired by Muhammad Ali's legacy. "Mentors are special gifts to the world. They encourage, motivate, reinforce, and guide others to reach their own greatness." - Lonnie Ali

During our Heroes and Helpers event in December Commander Giles & Sr. Officer Pena took a special photo with their former Field Training Officer, Chief Whitney. Nearly 25 years ago Chief Whitney began his mentorship role as a Field Training Officer (FTO). An FTO is specially trained to instruct new Police Officers. An FTO is a teacher, evaluator, and role model. Our Department has 23 members in our Field Training Program who play a special role in the development and guidance of new officers.

Today we will be sharing stories and videos of mentors in our Department & community.

How has mentorship impacted your life?
