Manchester Police Department will host its 24th session of the popular Citizens Police Academy, beginning Oct. 1, 2014.
The eight-week course will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. at the Manchester Police Department located at 405 Valley St. Manchester.
The Citizens Police Academy is designed to inform residents about the role of police in our community. The program consists of a classroom format with some limited participation, if you so choose.
Upon acceptance into the program, you can expect an informative session examining different aspects of police work at the Manchester Police Department. You will be exposed to the glamour and excitement you associate with police work, along with the processes that are less glamorous but vital to the day-to-day operations of this agency.
There is no fee to attend this program. You will be required to fill out a brief application and a background check will be conducted before your acceptance.
