Beginning Tuesday, April 29, 2014 and continuing for the next 8 weeks, the Gloucester Police Department will be offering its 3rd Citizens Police Academy to Gloucester residents age 18 and over. Gloucester Officers will instruct classes on subjects such as domestic violence, motor vehicle law, patrol procedures, accidents, firearms awareness, juvenile and drug problems, and many other topics relevant to police work. The academy will also include a police ride-along, a tour of the Middleton House of Correction, and a K-9 demonstration.
This class experience is designed to bring citizens into the station and give them a clear picture of what it’s like to be a Gloucester Police Officer. Citizens will learn a great deal about all aspects of police work and leave with a true representation if life as a police officer.

One thought on “Gloucester Police Launches Spring Citizens Police Academy”
I would encourage everyone to do this it is very interesting and fun. Its good to know why they do things the way they do. You will look at Cops so differently after this class. I did it about 10 years ago and would do it again if they let me.
