Dublin Police Services is now accepting applications for the 2014 Citizens’ Academy. The program, for adults who reside or work in Dublin, will be held on Wednesdays, from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM, for ten weeks, beginning April 2, 2014.
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 on topics such as Crime Scene/Evidence Collection, Traffic and Radio Operations, Juvenile Justice, Coroner’s Bureau, and Gangs and Drugs. Participants will have an opportunity to tour the Alameda County Crime Lab, Juvenile Hall, 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 25 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Potential participants must be at least 18 years old and must 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 are available online at www.dublin.ca.gov or at Dublin Police Services (100 Civic Plaza). To request an application be sent to you by e-mail or fax, please contact Sergeant Dave Snider at (925) 833-6681 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once completed, applications may be submitted by e-mail, fax, mail, or in person. The application deadline is March 21, 2014.
