Registration underway for Pittsburg Police Citizens' Academy

Updated:

News release from the Pittsburg Police Department:

The Pittsburg Police Department is currently accepting applications for our 7th Annual Citizens' Academy.  The academy is designed to help citizens understand the inner workings of their local police department.  The classes offered through this academy focus on police training, police procedures, legal issues, and basic philosophies of the department.  Our goal for the academy is to provide "understanding through education" and to give the public an open and honest view of the agency entrusted to serve and protect them.  We are striving to improve the relationship between the community and police officers, while enhancing mutual respect and trust for one another.  Working together we can create a better tomorrow.

This is a 10 week academy starting on September 5, 2013 and commencing on November 14, 2013.  Sessions will be every Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and will include two Saturday sessions.  All applicants must be 18 years of age and must reside, work, own a business, or attend college within the city limits of Pittsburg.  Applications may be obtained online at www.pittks.org under the Police Department tab or at the Beard-Shanks Law Enforcement Center located at 201 North Pine Street, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
