Here’s just some of what we’ve been up to.
"Throwback Thursday" takes us back to the year 1999 with this News-Herald story featuring Lt. Mike Poyle (Ret.) who spearheaded our Citizen's Police Academy. Lt. Poyle was in charge of training and specialized in self-defense tactics. Many an officer ended their training day soaking in a hot tub upon completion of Lt. Poyle's self-defense/survival training class, myself included. He was a strong believer in the idea that how hard you train will be reflected in your work performance. His goal was to make sure you went home safely to your family and loved ones at the end of the day. While working a two person patrol car I had the opportunity to be his partner for a number of years. Although Mike excelled in the physical side of police work, he was as compassionate as any officer toward those who were victimized by crime. He was a stickler for turning in an accurate and thorough police report. To this day Mike enjoys a competitive round of golf and is an accomplished pianist. If you remember Lt. Poyle or were a member of the Euclid Police Department's, Citizen's Police Academy, we would enjoy reading your comments.
