For the second year in a row, recruits from the Seminole State College of Florida Basic Law Enforcement Academy volunteered to assist at the Wounded Officers Initiative’s I CAARE for Law Enforcement Ride on Saturday, Oct. 1.
I CAARE stands for the organizations five goals in assisting wounded officers with Counseling, Advocacy, Awareness, Recognition and Education.
The annual ride helps provide essential services to address the long-term needs of wounded law enforcement officers whose injuries in the line of duty have prevented them from continuing their law enforcement careers.
The recruits from Class 128 assisted the police-escorted ride that began at the Seminole Harley Davidson dealership in Sanford and traveled into Lake County before returning to the dealership.
Seminole State has been training Central Florida’s law enforcement professionals since 1969.
Seminole State's Center for Public Safety is a statewide educational resource for all aspects of criminal justice, fire science and EMS. In addition to preparing future first responders, the Center for Public Safety also provides advanced, specialized and in-service training for current law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs and paramedics.
