Eureka Police Department begins citizen’s academy
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.
