Colonel Stephen M. McCartney and the Community Services Division of the Warwick Police Department would like to invite its residents to attend its upcoming Citizens Police Academy. The academy closely follows the actual hands-on training that police officers follow in an effort to teach citizens about what the police department and its officers do on an everyday basis and to build a stronger bond between the department and its residents and business community. The academy runs for nine consecutive weeks, from March 20 to May 15 on Wednesday nights and mainly held at the Warwick Police Department Headquarters at 99 Veterans Memorial Dr.
The academy is free of charge to all city of Warwick residents and employees, who are 18 or older with no criminal histories. Deadline for applications is March 13. Class size is limited to 35 participants.
For more information about the Citizens Police Academy, go to the Warwick Police Web site, or contact Officer Steven Nelson at 468-4373 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
