Whitehouse PD Donates Police Car

Cadets in the NSCC Law Enforcement Academy will have more opportunities to practice their driving techniques, search & seizure skills and more thanks to the Whitehouse Police Department. The department recently donated a patrol car to NSCC.

“This donation will make a big impact on students in the academy. In the past, cadets had access to police vehicles but only for limited amounts of time,” said David Mack, academy commander at NSCC. “Having a police vehicle permanently on site will give the students more opportunities to train for stops and approaches, search and seizures, patrol and traffic enforcement, and driving techniques. That means students will be better prepared when they graduate and enter the workforce.”

Mack worked with Mark McDonough, chief of the Whitehouse Police Department to secure the donation. “The academy has a strong history of partnering with local law enforcement agencies to enhance student training. That support is critical to the success of our students,” said Lori Robison, dean of Allied Health & Public Services at NSCC. “We appreciate all of Chief McDonough’s efforts and the Whitehouse Police Department’s commitment to helping educate the next generation of law enforcement professionals.”
