Mr. Beck was our speaker for the evening and he gave a very interesting talk entitled "6 Weeks in a Sheriff's Office in Florida." He told us how he went out in a Police car for a 12 hour shift, flew in a helicopter another time and also how he went on a course for Citizen's Academy and received a certificate on passing the course. He explained how different the police in Florida work from our police They carry guns at all times, even when off duty and have a shot gun locked in the roof of the police car.
