On behalf of myself and GACP District 5 Representative Chief Chris Wright, we would like to invite you to our next quarterly meeting that will be held ; Tuesday, 20 February 2018 at 1200-1400 hours at the Bonefish Grill located on St Simons Island. The physical address is 202 Retreat Village #3 St Simons Island, Ga. 31522.


Our speaker will be Charles “Skeet” Brewer from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. The subject will be; “How to Implement a Tactical Medicine Training Program”. He presented this to the IACP in Philadelphia last year and as I understand it, the presentation was well received and very beneficial. For those of you who have the benefit of knowing “Skeet”, he’s an awesome and humble guy that gets things done. He’s done an outstanding job getting all my staff up to speed on tactical medicine and bleeding control. He will also discuss other training options at the FLETC and how to take advantage of the FLETC training close to home. This block he will present to us has been submitted to Monica at GACP for approval for POST Chief’s credit.


I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank newly appointed Glynn County Police Chief John Powell on his appointment as Chief, and for desiring to host this event! He’s a guy with a ton of experience and a superlative attitude of service and collaboration. On another note, if you have not eaten at the Bonefish, you’re in for a real treat!


I would also like to thank Chief Powell’s team, specifically Chief of Staff Brian Scott & Sgt. David Haney Jr., for their initiative in helping to make this happen in a great venue with a great speaker…thanks guys!


PLEASE RSVP WITH SGM PAULA HENDERSON @ in order that we can get a headcount prior to the meeting, or by calling 912-267-4100 EXT 7111
