Members of the FBI Richmond Citizens Academy Alumni Association attended the presentation and simulation exercises at the Richmond Police Department Training Academy. Each of us had an opportunity to go through two scenarios of what it would be like to walk in an officer's shoes. Based on the simulation the police assigned us, we had to determine what type of weapon to use, a handgun, taser, pepper spray, or no weapon at all. It gave us all a better appreciation of what happens in just the few seconds the police have to decide what to do. We learned a lot and we also had a great time.

A big thank you to Bill Levitt for making the contact so we could attend this, and to Captain Harvey Powers for the awesome job he did in teaching us the ropes.

The Richmond Flying Squirrels Baseball Team graciously donated these auction items shown below to the FBI National Citizens Academy Leadership Conference. This year the Conference will be held September 6-8 in Sacramento CA.

Veterans Appreciation Cookout

The FBI Richmond Citizens Academy Alumni Academy held their annual Veterans Appreciation cookout on Saturday, May 20. Twenty members and their spouses gathered to grill hamburgers and hot dogs, fill plates, and deliver meals to patients at the Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia. Approximately 600 servings were distributed and the members spent time talking with the patients, their families, and hospital staff. We also met members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Royal Order of the Cooties, who were at the medical center distributing goodie boxes to the veterans.

204 Pounds of Food to FeedMore

A BIG shout out to the FBI Richmond Citizens Academy Alumni Association for collecting and dropping off 204 pounds of food to FeedMore on Wednesday, May 3, 2017. FeedMore appreciated this donation which is greatly needed to help those right here in our own community.

Spanning nearly one-third of the state, across 34 counties and cities, FeedMore serves more than 200,000 individuals in the region's most vulnerable populations - children, families and seniors. Working together to efficiently and effectively fight hunger, FeedMore's multi-tiered approach and comprehensive programs are dedicated to nourishing the community while empowering lives.

A big “thank you” goes to the Short Pump Wegmans Food Market for their $300 gift card donation. This donation will be ​used to help provide a meal to the Spring 2017 class of the FBI Richmond Citizens Academy.
