Newark Citizen Police Academy

Submitted By Beverly Ryans

The City of Newark is seeking residents, as well as individuals who work within the City of Newark, to participate in our eight week Citizen Police Academy. The next Academy is scheduled to begin on April 11, 2013 and will run through May 30, 2013.

Police personnel will provide an overview of the department's structure, services, and personnel, as well as offer students the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any specific public safety concerns they might have. Participants will also be given an opportunity to ride along with a police officer to experience first-hand the duties they perform on a daily basis.

Detectives and Investigations
Crime Scene Investigation
Use of Force
