He said the academy gave him good preparation for his work ahead. In the classroom, he studied legal issues, but also how to handle hazardous materials and de-escalation tactics for tense situations. He had physical training three days a week as well as training in firearms, defensive tactics and driving skills. The class practiced a wide variety of scenarios and role plays so officers could build confidence and familiarity with a wide variety of situations.

Holland, who was number one in his academy class, said he felt he received top class training at the academy, and he praised his training officers and the program.
