The Prescott Police Department is proud to announce the addition of three Citizens on Patrol members to its force. According to Public Information Officer Lt. Andrew Reinhardt, City Councilman Bob Bell, along with local residents Christine Kilrain and Dan Speights, assumed their job duties last week during the busy Fourth of July events.
Those interested in becoming a Citizen-on-Patrol member attend about 20 hours of training in addition to attending a Citizen's Academy, which is available to Prescott-area citizens.
Prescott PD is still recruiting for Citizens Academy, said Reinhardt. Academy training is one day per week for four weeks. Each session is four hours in duration and features an overview of the Patrol Bureau, SWAT operations, Traffic Section/DUI Enforcement, Property and Evidence, crime prevention, and firearms training with an interactive simulator.
For those interested in obtaining further information on attending the Citizens Academy or becoming a member of Citizens on Patrol, contact Bruce Moncher at 777-1952.
