Recognizing an opportunity for enhanced training as it related to our C.A.P.’s detective’s knowledge of homicide investigation, Lt. Allen conducted extensive research locating one of the lead homicide investigators in the nation. Upon making contact with him she successfully persuaded him to teach a class in Coral Springs. Lt. Allen promoted the class nation-wide resulting in 51 officers from out of the area attending the 3-day seminar. By hosting the class we were able to have 11 department members attend the class for a reduced cost of $171 each. This saved a large amount of money while addressing the need for advanced training. It is for this reason Lt. Amy Allen is being awarded the Administrative Services Commendation.
