Registration is now open for Dublin Police Services' 2018 Citizens Academy. The ten-week program begins on Wednesday, April 4, and culminates in a graduation ceremony on Wednesday, June 6. Classes are held ten consecutive Wednesday evenings, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.
The goal of the Citizens Academy is to teach the public about law enforcement operations, foster kinship between the community and law enforcement, and to promote community policing by supporting and encouraging citizen involvement. The Academy will offer instruction by experienced law enforcement staff. Participants will have an opportunity to tour the Alameda County Crime Lab, Coroner's Office, Juvenile Hall, Santa Rita Jail (the fifth largest jail in the nation), as well as get a taste of officer training at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC).
Sessions are limited to 25 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and successfully complete a background investigations check, sign waiver forms, and be approved by the Chief of Police. Felony convictions or serious criminal arrests are cause for dismissing an applicant.
Applications may be completed online, or a hard copy application may be picked up at Dublin Police Services (100 Civic Plaza), Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The application deadline is Friday, March 9, 2018.
