The King is Back. Orian Hunter was home for the summer, taking one of his mandatory, temporary lay-off’s from his job as a counselor at the Sterling Public High School. He wanted to get into the admin side of the school system but that didn’t work.
Orian has been busy on his last couple mandatory, temporary lay-off’s by going to Europe and spending all his money, his mother fell and was in the hospital and assisted living home and they had to sell her house, and, he himself had a pain in his back and had all kinds of tests done and the long story short is, he has MS. Welcome back Orian. $5 to Miley and the King got a pen for coming to lunch.
Program: Barney O’Grady was program chair this week and introduced Lieutenant Doug Parker, a police officer with Littleton PD. Doug was born in Illinois, moving to Colorado when he was eight. In 1974, he graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, as well as minors in history and English literature.
Lt. Parker became a police officer with Littleton in March, 975. Prior to that, he was a police officer with the U.of CO. for two years. Doug is currently assigned to the Professional Standards Bureau, in charge of Training, Internal Affairs, the Field Training Program and the Citizen’s Police Academy. During his tenure with Littleton, Doug served with SWAT for 26 years. He has experience in under cover work in an assignment with the Arapahoe County Special Crime Attack Team.
Doug talked about “taggers” and the impact they have on the community. Since most of them are young and poor, it’s hard to get restitution from them to clean up what they did. Not all taggers are gang members and the tags are like finger prints.
Doug mentioned there are openings for the Citizen’s Police Academy and if interested, to get a form and fill it out. It’s an 11 week course and 420 have graduated in 10 years. There is also a shortage all over the country for police officers with some very good incentives from areas like LA.
It wasn’t bad enough the our resident attorney called Doug a Sergeant but Mr. Vierthaler wan the Pot of Gold.
