Skinhead Groups Gain Youhful Following  

October 1, 1996

July 1, 1996

The Orlando PD is fortunate to have such a conscientious field training offi­cer, whose sincerity and attentiveness will go a long way to mold new recruits into officers who know what it means to serve the community. It's a small gesture with big returns.
