Dublin Police Services will be hosting the 2012 Citizens’ Police Academy for adults who reside or work in Dublin. The Academy’s first session will be Wednesday, March 28, 2012, and will be held for nine Wednesdays thereafter, from 6:30pm – 9:30pm. The Academy will culminate in a graduation on May 30, 2012.
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 personnel on topics such as: Crime Scene/Evidence Collection, Traffic and Radio Operations, Gangs and Drugs, and the Coroner’s Bureau. Participants will have an opportunity to tour Santa Rita Jail, the 5th 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 30 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Potential participants must be at least 18 years old and must successfully complete a background investigation check, sign waiver forms, and be approved by the Chief of Police. Felony convictions or serious criminal arrests are cause for dismissal of an applicant.
