Applications are being accepted for the 2015 Bexley Police Department Citizen Police Academy.
The academy is designed to give citizens a better understanding of the capabilities of the police department. It is not intended to make citizens into police officers, but to allow citizens to learn more about police operations and to experience the following: crime scene investigations, crime prevention, traffic enforcement, gang awareness, firearms/use of force, ride-along, and legal requirements. Participants will be afforded "hands-on" experience in working with some of the equipment utilized by our officers.
The Citizen Police Academy meets on 1 evening a week between the hours of 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. The Academy runs for 10 weeks and is held at the Bexley Police Department's training room, located at 559 North Cassingham Road. Participants are required to attend seven of the ten classes to be eligible for graduation. There is maximum of 12 students per class. There is no cost to attend.
Anyone who lives or works in Bexley will be able to participate. Applicants who would not be considered are: Persons who have applications pending with a law enforcement agency, persons with known criminal history, persons under 21 years of age, and persons living and working outside of the Bexley city limits.
The Academy will run from Thursday, September 17, 2015 - Thursday, November 19, 2015.
