Have you ever wanted to learn more about the Fremont Police Department? Now is your opportunity, because the department is recruiting for the Winter session of its Community Police Academy.

The free 44-hour program starts Tuesday, Feb. 13 and will meet weekly for 12 sessions. Meetings will generally be 7 to 10 p.m. Tuesdays with one or two Saturday classes possibly scheduled to accommodate specialized training.

Participants will learn about topics such as police selection and training, internal investigations, criminal law, patrol operations, communications, crime prevention, crime analysis, firearms training, critical incidents, narcotics, gangs, and traffic control.

Space is limited to approximately 30 students and applications will be taken on a first-come basis through 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18 or when 30 applications are received. Applicants will undergo a background check, including digital fingerprinting and a records check. Those with a felony conviction will be disqualified; misdemeanor convictions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
