People interested in law enforcement from the inside out will have an opportunity to do so beginning in March. The Auburn Police Department is accepting applications for their fourth Citizens’ Awareness Academy. Police Chief, John Ruffcorn, says its an opportunity for the police department to be seen as more than just law enforcement.
The Citizen’s Academy provides access to behind the scenes and hands-on activities at the police department.
Participantsalso learn vehicle operations, arrest and control techniques, 911 communications, animal control, and interaction with other law enforcement agencies.
Ruffcorn says the academy is an excellent opportunity for students interested in law enforcement. He has first hand knowledge of what it was like to start at an early age.
The free, 10-week program begins March 7, 2013 and meets on Thursdays from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, at City Hall.
For information or to apply, please call the Auburn Police Department at (530) 823-4237 extension 202, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
