Eureka Police Department begins citizen’s academy

22 February 2011   

The Eureka Police Department has developed a citizen’s police academy.

The EPD press release announcing the academy says it was created to forge a stronger partnership between citizens and the police department by educating the community in law enforcement issues and police department policies and procedures. The academy is also a means for participants and police personnel to share information and ideas about the police profession.

The academy will include a variety of topics, demonstrations, tours and hands-on experience and will be facilitated by members of the police department with expertise in the topic area.

The department is accepting applications for the citizen’s police academy, which is scheduled to begin Tuesday, March 22, and will run for seven weeks on Tuesdays from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Applications for the Citizen’s Police Academy can be obtained at the business office of the Eureka Police Department, 604 C St., Eureka, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., online at www.ci.eureka.ca.gov or by mail by calling 441-4373.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have no felony convictions, have no misdemeanor convictions in the last three years and pass a background check conducted by the Eureka Police Department. Applications will be accepted through March 22.

 

March 13, 2011: The Eureka Times-Standard pulled its February 22, 2011 article about this "Citizen's Police Academy." It's not even in the Times-Standard archives!  Maybe the academy is only for 'certain' citizens...
