January lunch at the police academy

In the first of 2016's planned offsite lunches on Jan. 5, we met at the Southwest Florida Public Service Academy in Fort Myers for a tour, talk and lunch.
The academy's Todd Everly told us about the criminal justice and fire fighting courses conducted there in a semi-military style. The academy is affiliated with the Lee County School District and Fort Myers Technical College.
We toured the building, a former elementary school (with some short facilities to show for it), and saw classrooms, workout room, the fire tower and other sights. We returned for a delicious barbecue lunch and discussed the image of law enforcement today and asked Everly questions.
In other business, we welcomed new member Logan Peters from Robb & Stucky and thanked our sponsors, LCEC, Charlotte Behavioral Health Care, iPartner Media Flame Productions and Florida Southwestern University.
