“I’d really like to pursue a career in the police force and this course has really helped prepare me for the rigors of drills, fitness training and teamwork. As part of the course, we’ve done some great activities including a three-day camping trip where we had to build tents, cook over fires and trek across the countryside. It was great fun and really helped the group work together as a team.”
