Safety Institute’s Basic Recruit Classes (BRC) 390, 391 and 392 recently
presented a check for $4425 to Law Enforcement United, a charity that assists
the families of police officers who are killed in the line of duty. Leon County
Sheriff Larry Campbell visited FPSI’s campus to accept the check on behalf of
Law Enforcement United.
FPSI’s law enforcement classes are required to work together
