College Station Citizen Police Academy
Beginning September 6, 2011, the College Station Citizen Police Academy will start its 10-week civilian training course. During training, College Station residents will learn how both the criminal justice system and local police departments work as well as how you, a regular College Station citizen, can work in conjunction with police officials to help make your community a safer place to live. In addition to classroom instruction (which involves role-playing for a more “hands-on” learning experience), students of the academy will also be allowed on ride-alongs with active police officers to get a first hand look at what our law enforcement officers go through on a day-to-day basis.
Some of the topics that will be covered during the 10 week course include:
- 911 Dispatch
- Court System
- Crime Scene Investigation Procedures
- Criminal Investigation Techniques
- Criminal Law
- Traffic Law
- Uniformed Patrol
The College Station Citizen Police Academy is provided free of charge and meets every Tuesday evening from 6:30-9:30pm from September 6, 2011 to November 22, 2011 at the College Station Police Department (2611 Texas Avenue, College Station, TX). All you have to do is complete and turn in an application by the end of business (5pm) on August 26, 2011.
