The Danvers Police Department is inviting the public to apply for the Citizens Police Academy that begins on March 25, 2015. The 10-week program runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday through May 27th. The Citizen Police Academy offers citizens insights into how police officers perform their duties and how the department serves the community. The instruction will cover different areas of police work such as patrol, firearms, criminal law, crime analysis, domestic violence and the legal process. Participants are versed on use of force and actually get to fire a handgun under the supervision of a firearms instructor. Police officers, supervisors, and civilian instructors with particular expertise will conduct each topic. A ride along in a cruiser will give participants a chance to see what real-time patrol is like.
The academy is free to any interested citizen who resides or works in Danvers. Applications can be downloaded HERE or may be picked up at the Danvers Police Station. Please contact Sergeant Olivia Silva at 978-774-1213, ext. 134. with any questions.
