Citizens’ Police Academy 1st Graduating Class
Congratulations to the 13 residents who recently graduated from the Firestone Police Department’s first Citizens’ Police Academy.
Graduation celebrated the 10-week program that provided a hands-on learning experience designed to build a better understanding of law enforcement and the decisions officers make and to build partnerships within the community.
This Citizens’ Police Academy combined classroom presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on experiences on various topics, including building searches, criminal law, community policing, vehicle stops, officer survival, police technology, use of force, and much more.
Information on the next Citizens’ Police Academy will be released next summer.
