Deputy Robert Lundy to speak at law enforcement graduation

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (June 23, 2014) – The Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy will graduate Law Enforcement Basic Recruit Class 411 at 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 24, at the Florida Public Safety Institute’s Conference Center on Highway 90 west of Tallahassee.

Deputy Robert Lundy of the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office will be the evening’s guest speaker. Lundy was hailed a hero last February when he was involved in a gunfight at a business in Perry, Florida. He suffered life-threatening wounds in the incident but was able to return fire against the assailant and prevented the loss of several lives through his heroic actions.

Each Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy Basic Recruit Class completes 824 hours of training that includes law enforcement topics such as firearms, defensive tactics, first aid and emergency vehicle driving. Each class also performs a community service project. Basic Recruit Class 411 decided to have a fundraiser to assist Lundy and his family, as the injuries sustained during his heroic act have since prevented him from returning to work. The recruits raised $2,400 for Lundy and his family, which they intend to present to him at graduation.

The Florida Public Safety Institute is very proud of its newest graduates and honored to have the “2014 Local Hero,” Deputy Robert Lundy, address recruits as they begin their journey into the law enforcement profession.​
