CITIZEN POLICE ACADEMY GOALS
Citizen Police Academy Application
The Junction City Police Department Citizen Police Academy was created to forge a partnership between citizens and the Junction City Police. The goal of the Citizen Police Academy is to educate Junction City citizens about the structure and activities of their police department. The Citizen Police Academy is not a “training” class, but is an exciting “information” class, a behind-the-scenes look at the Junction City Police Department. The Citizen Police Academy program operates on the premise that informed and educated citizens will be more supportive of police officers and the department, and will be more productive within their own neighborhoods and communities.
CITIZEN POLICE ACADEMY CLASSES
The 10-week Citizen Police Academy course meets one night each week for approximately 3 hours. Classes are held at the Junction City Police Department. Topics covered in the Citizen Police Academy include overviews of the Junction City Police Department’s organization and structure, information on officer recruiting and training, introductions to the various divisions of Junction City Police Department and their responsibilities (such as Community Involvement Unit, Operations Unit, Drug Operations Group, Investigation Unit), plus hands-on workshops in areas such as Tactics, Fingerprinting and Firearms Safety.
Instructors are drawn from the Junction City Police Department staff and other areas of expertise. Citizen Police Academy class members are also given an opportunity to observe police patrol work through a Ride-A-Long experience with an area patrol officer.
