Police & Fire Academy Begins May 2

Residents are invited to join the Annual Citizens’ Police & Fire Academy for 2017. The program offers a “behind-the-scenes” view of the dangers firefighters and police officers face on the job. Class begins on May 2 and will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 to 10 p.m. for seven weeks at Public Safety Headquarters, 3849 Cartwright Rd.

This free program is for citizens who are at least 18 years old. Interested residents may apply online on the City’s website or pick up an application at the following locations:

  • Public Safety Headquarters, 3849 Cartwright Rd.
  • Police Mini Station, 1703-A Texas Pkwy.
  • City Hall Complex, 1522 Texas Pkwy.

“This popular program gives residents an opportunity to see and perform the many jobs of their local public servants,” Chief of Police Mike Berezin said. “The seven-week program features live police scenarios, a vehicle extraction, CPR training, mock crime scene investigations, and a SWAT demonstration.”

After completing the academy, members will be eligible to join the Police & Fire Auxiliary and/or the Citizen’s Response Team, both of which provide support to local police officers and firefighters.

“The Academy is a perfect opportunity for residents to learn more about the daily operations of the Police Department and Fire & Rescue Services. The program reviews the different types of crimes officers are confronted with on a daily basis and also provides an overview of the training police officers and firefighters undergo,” Fire & Rescue Services Chief Eugene Campbell, Jr. said. “The cadets will experience building searches for armed suspects, conduct traffic stops, and participate in many other hands-on activities.”
