The Citizens Police Academy begins March 15, 2016 and runs for 10 weeks. All classes are held on a Tuesday night at the Police Department's Community Room from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The citizens academy is a snapshot into what the police do on a daily basis. The students learn about the history of the department, patrol procedures, criminal investigations, DUI laws, drug enforcement, domestic violence laws, traffic enforcement, budgeting and a whole host of other topics. Guest lecturers come into the sessions and speak on their area of expertise, a ride-along is available at the end of the session and participants can take part in a practical shooting exercise at the police firing range. Any resident 18 years and older can apply and applications are due to the department by March 14, 2016. Applications can be picked up at the Communications window at the department. Applicants are subject to a criminal background check. Anyone with questions can call Sgt Dunn at 860-669-0451.
