Are you interested in law enforcement? Would you like to know more about the many facets of police work? Registration is now open for the Dublin Police Services Citizens Academy. The ten-week program will be held on Wednesdays, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., from March 29 to May 31.
The goal of the Citizens’ Academy is to teach the public about law enforcement operations, foster a partnership between the community and law enforcement, and to promote community policing by supporting and encouraging citizen involvement. The Academy will offer instruction by experienced law enforcement staff. Participants will have an opportunity to tour the Alameda County Crime Lab, Coroner’s Office, Juvenile Hall, Santa Rita Jail, as well as get a taste of officer training at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC).
Other subjects to be covered include:
- Crime Scene/Evidence Collection
- Gangs and Drugs
- Traffic and Radio Operations
- Auto and Residential Burglaries
- K-9 Unit
- Bomb Squad
Sessions are limited to 25 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be at least 18 years old, and must successfully complete a background check, sign waiver forms, and be approved by the Chief of Police. Felony convictions or serious criminal arrests are cause for dismissing an applicant.
