I-Team Exclusive: Police academy training on crisis intervention
Baltimore County police Officer Joaquin Prudent has always wanted to be a police officer. He grew up in Parkville and hopes to one day patrol the streets in his home community. He's starting his career in the Woodlawn Precinct after he graduated a year ago from the academy. "I just want(ed) to be part of a change. I know policing had a bad stigma," said Prudent. He said there were two police officers in the neighborhood where he grew up who kept him on the right path. Their example motivated him to join the police department.
