Prescott's Citizens Police Academy now registering applicants
The Prescott Police Department invites residents to get an inside look at how the department operates by attending the Spring 2011 Citizens Police Academy.
Participants will receive a complete overview of the various functions and services of the Prescott Police Department, learn about the hiring process to become a police officer, find out what recruits endure at the academy, how the Regional Communications Center operates, as well as watch and interact in K9 scenarios, SWAT operations and DUI/traffic enforcement scenarios. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a role playing, high-tech, video training system (MILO) which tests the judgment and reaction of those assuming the role of a police officer.
Classes take place from 6 to 9:15 p.m. Wednesday evenings from May 4 through May 25, and there will be a brief ceremony from 6 to 7 p.m. May 26, where participants will receive a certificate of participation for attending the academy.
Participants must be a Prescott resident, at least 18 years of age, and a legal U.S. resident.
The deadline to apply is April 22. Class size will be limited to 20 participants.
