The Carrboro Police Department will be running our next Citizen's Police Academy on September 10th, 2016 at the Carrboro Police Department. I'll be the lead instructor during the academy and numerous other officers will be on hand to assist with different blocks of instruction. The basic format for the Citizen's Police Academy is listed below:
- Classroom lecture on the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, law enforcement operations & procedures and vital department statistics.
- Hands-on activities including fingerprint lifting, K-9 demonstrations, vehicle demonstrations, etc.
- Scenarios involving roleplayers where participants will get to act as police officers and respond to calls for services based on real calls we've responded to.
Lunch will be provided as part of the Academy.
