Citizen Police Academy in Newark
Submitted By Commander Bob Douglas, Newark PD
The Newark Police Department is seeking residents, as well as individuals who work within the city, to participate in our Citizen Police Academy. The next Academy is scheduled to begin on September 14, 2011. Sessions will be held every Wednesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for 7 weeks, with a graduation ceremony planned for November 2, 2011. Participants will meet primarily at City Hall (37101 Newark Blvd.), although a few sessions require meeting at other local venues.
Our goal is to provide the community with a "behind the scenes" look at our department through a series of lectures, demonstrations, tours, and hands-on exercises.
Topics covered will include:
Patrol & Traffic Procedures
Crime Scene Investigation
Have no prior felony or serious misdemeanor convictions;
Be willing to have a background check completed;
Have the ability to attend all scheduled sessions;
Be at least 21 years old; and
Live or work in the City of Newark
