“The citizen’s academy is a tremendous

opportunity for the citizenry to have a

greater understanding of their police department.

This academy serves as an example of our

commitment to bridge the gap between law

enforcement and the people that we serve. It

also reinforces the principal that for the police

to be successful we must have a genuine

partnership with our community”
