The Citizens Police Academy is a fun, free, informative, six-week course. Classes are condensed versions of actual police training that will provide the student with an overall view in a variety of law enforcement areas.
It is offered to lay persons in our community by the Bartlett Police Department in an effort to educate citizens and give them an opportunity to observe and understand law enforcement from a "hands on" approach. In doing this we hope to build bridges within our community.
We believe that with learning will come understanding, and with understanding will come an abiding respect for those who wear the badge.
Department presentations include Crime Scene Investigations, Canine Unit, Traffic Enforcement and Narcotics.
There is no fee to attend this course, however, space is limited.
For information on the next Academy contact the coordinator via email Captain Todd Halford or email Lori Minch.
