TOPEKA -- The Topeka Police Department is accepting applications for its 26th Citizens’ Academy through March 19th, 2010.
Citizens attending will be exposed to the problems and challenges faced by law enforcement and learn how their police department meets those challenges. Participants will learn about various aspects of the Police Department including field operations and investigative divisions, bomb disposal, crime scene investigation, school programs and much more!
The classes are held Thursday nights from 6:00-9:00 p.m. March 25 –June 10 and an optional eight-hour Saturday session covering emergency driving and use of force (shoot/don't shoot), which will give the participants a "hands-on" experience in these areas.
If you or anyone you know is interested in attending, contact Sgt. Lance Feyh at 368-9497. Media are also invited to participate in these classes. There is limited space available, so turn your applications in soon!
Applications can be picked up at the Topeka Police Department or downloaded from the City of Topeka web site at www.topeka.org and mailed to:
