The King City and Greenfield Police Departments are offering a 12-week Community Police Academy, which will provide participants an up close look at police work. It builds partnerships between police and the community by allowing residents to participate in police training and education.

The academy does not train participants to be future police officers, but is designed to inform citizens about police policies, procedures, laws and resources. The goal is to foster community support, safety, and awareness. Participants will learn about police selection and training, internal investigations, criminal law, patrol operations, communications, crime prevention, firearms training, critical incidents, narcotics, gangs, crime scene investigation (CSI), code and traffic enforcement, and much more.

The program will begin within the next few weeks and registration is NOW OPEN! For more information, please contact the Police Department at 386-5950.
