Municipal Police Officers' Education And Training Commission

Municipal Police Officers' Education And Training Commission The Commission's duties include administration of Pennsylvania's municipal police officer training and certification program. The Municipal Police Officers' Education and Training Commission was statutorily created by Act 1974-120 (53 P.S. 740-749) and charged to establish the Municipal Police Officers' Education and Training Program.

The Commission is also responsible for the certification and decertification of municipal police officers. Officers require certification by the Commission prior to enforcing the crimes code, moving violations of the vehicle code, or carrying a firearm.

Freedom Isn't Free

~ In Memory of five law enforcement officers ambushed in Dallas Texas ~

Dallas Police Officer Patrick Zamarripa, 32
(MA2 - USNR), spent eight years in active Naval duty, worked five years as a military reservist and served three tours in Iraq. The father with a 2-year-old daughter was an avid sports fan and known around the community. Hehad survived three tours in Iraq, one of the world’s most dangerous places, his father, Rick Zamarripa, said Friday. And then this. He was awarded numerous medals and decorations for his work in the Navy. He received the Good Conduct Medal, Overseas Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal and the Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal, to name a few. His entire adult life had been devoted to service. He entered the Navy soon after high school, his father said, and saw combat during his time in Iraq. When he got out about five years ago, he joined the Dallas Police Department.

DART Officer Brent Thompson, 43
served as an officer for Dallas Area Rapid Transit since 2009. Brent Thompson was the first person killed in the line of duty in the 27-year history of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit authority. Military records indicate that Thompson served in the Marines during the early 1990s. Officer Thompson was just married. He was also a father of six and a grandfather of three.

Dallas Police Officer Michael Krol, 40
a Redford, Michigan native, worked as a Wayne County Sheriff's Deputy in the county jail system from 2003 to 2007. He moved to Dallas in 2007 where he became a police officer in the Dallas Police Department. He was "a big guy who had a big heart,"says his brother-in-law, "... he was a really caring person and wanted to help people."

Dallas Police Senior Cpl. Lorne Ahrens, 48
a California native, died in the ambush, according to the Washington Post and local media reports. Ahrens was a 14-year veteran of the force, according to media reports. He may have been big, but he had a soft touch with children, according to his father-in-law. He rolled on the floor with them gleefully and liked to take them fishing and to the movies. More than once, he went in uniform to his daughter’s school to talk about policing and safety. According to The Washington Post, Ahren's wife is a Dallas police detective. A husband and father, he leaves behind a 10-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son.

Dallas Police Sgt. Michael Smith, 55
had received the "Cop's Cop" award from the Dallas Police Associated, according to the Dallas Morning News. He was a former Army Ranger who joined the police force in 1989, according to Texas television station KDFM, which spoke with his sister. Michael had two daughters, ages 14 and 10, with his wife of 17 years.

A fund to assist the families of the killed officers has been set up @ http://atodallas.org/
