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 Citizen Police Academy. The next Academy is scheduled to begin on September 25, 2013 and end on November 13, 2013 with a graduation ceremony. Classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. primarily at the City Administration Building located at 37101 Newark Boulevard, although a few sessions require meeting at other local venues.
This eight-week academy is designed to provide participants with a "behind the scenes" look at local law enforcement and to promote a greater understanding and awareness of our role in the community. 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.
Citizen Police Academy participants will be selected through an application process.
Don't delay... space is limited!
Those interested should complete and submit the application form (available online at www.newark.org) no later than Monday, September 9, 2013. For more information on the Newark Citizen Police Academy, please contact Beverly Ryans at (510) 578-4352 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
