SPD Citizen’s Police Academy opens applications

  • Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Summerville Police have scheduled its fall Citizen’s Police Academy to begin August 27.
The purpose of the Summerville Police Department’s Citizen’s Police Academy is to provide citizens who live or work in Summerville a deeper understanding of the job knowledge, skills, and abilities required of the modern day law enforcement officer.
This will be accomplished through the use of department instructors and employees with specific or specialized knowledge and experience, through the use of video and audio presentations, as well as practical “hands on” exercises.
Participants will utilize the information presented to gain insight into the difficult challenges facing police. By observing different areas of the department, the participants will be given the opportunity to view an officer or officers during the day to day activities of “protecting and serving” the community.
Citizens, who are at least 18 years of age, reside or work in the Town of Summerville and have an interest in learning about the workings of the police department, are eligible to take part. The class will be limited to 20 students and is filling up fast.
Classes are held Tuesday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. beginning August 27 and ending October 29. Some optional Saturday classes may be offered for hands-on training.
Classes will be held in the Summerville Police Training Room at 300 West 2nd North Street and at other locations as required by topic.
Applications and additional information are available online at www.summervillepolice.com.
