The Chattanooga Police Department’s Office of Community Outreach is once again holding its Citizens’ Police Academy beginning March 14.
This is an eight-week course that gives citizens a glimpse into how the police department does its job. Instructors from the police department teach each class one night a week, covering a variety of topics including narcotics, homicide investigation, patrol, and the SWAT team.
Officials said, "In addition to learning about your Police Department, it’s a great chance to meet people from all the communities that make up Chattanooga."
Anyone who would like to sign up for the Chattanooga Police Department’s Citizens’ Police
Academy, should contact Officer Wayne Jefferson at 643-5090, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
40 seats are available for the next class, and all applications must be returned to the Office of Community Outreach no later than March 4.
