Police academy for actors and all interested individuals
Boca Raton, FL – On Saturday, May 21, the Palm Beach Institute for the Entertainment (PBIEA) will offer a unique police training workshop for actors and all interested individuals. Classes will run from 13:00 to 16:00.
Retired Police Officer Paul Schad will teach an intensive police procedural course, which will give actors an advantage in auditions for the role of law enforcement agencies. Non-actors will broaden their understanding of police work. Florida has always been and always will be a place where police shows for bread and butter actors are. From Miami Vice to Burn Notice, The Glades, CSI: Miami, Dexter, Ballers and Rosewood and many more, Florida is diverse in terms of geography, economy and demography, making it one place for all locations. In our big cities and small remote areas, “something” always happens.
Paul Schad has almost 30 years of experience as a police officer. He worked for the NYPD and Broward Sheriff’s Office, where he was a detective. He is an actor and police technical adviser for film and literature. Paul taught this intensive 3-hour workshop POLICE ACADEMY FOR ACTORS (and others) in New York, Florida, Texas, and Georgia.
This class informs participants about how and why basic police tactics and movements are used. They learn the skills and gain the confidence needed for bankruptcy and effective conduct in the tasks of law enforcement agencies. Participants will be introduced to various police equipment (ballistic vests, service belts, etc.) to be sure how to handle and use them properly. This is not a martial arts class, so it will not be thrown or struck. However, participants will learn how and why police officers are trained in the presence of command … training that allows them to be prepared to defend against an attack. To achieve this goal, participants will practice several contactless “air” strikes and kicks. Likewise, there will be no real firearms in the classroom, only bulletproof props through which people learn safe and correct tactical moves.
This workshop provides a wealth of useful information in three hours … and participants have fun in class. The class is limited to 10 students.
This three-hour intensive Saturday workshop costs $ 150.00. While not a pocket watch, it’s a valuable investment in the actor’s future, especially now that the TV series “Bad Monkey” (based on Carl Hiaasen’s novel of the same name) is being shot. Many local actors have been hired and many others are considering roles in this series.
