professional standards, constitutional law, traffic safety, forensic services,
special teams, vice/narcotics, firearms training and more.
The program is set to
begin on January 17, 2024 and will run through April 17, 2024 with sessions
every Wednesday evening from 6pm-8pm. All sessions are in-person and most
will take place at Police Headquarters locate at 100 E Police Plaza Greensboro,
