Spring 2018 Citizens' Academy

Posted Friday February, 9th 2018 6:26PM
CITIZENS’ POLICE ACADEMY STARTS MARCH 28, 2018

SALEM, MA.- The Salem Police Department will be offering a Citizens’ Police Academy starting on March 28, 2018 and will run for a ten (10) week period. The goal of the Citizens’ Police Academy is to offer insight into the Department as an organization, discuss current case law that affects policing today, and to give a general understanding of the day to day duties of a Salem police officer.

This ten week course will cover topics such as patrol, firearms, search & seizure, underwater criminal investigation, modern day police technology, use of force and other areas of interest. Topics will be taught by patrolmen and superior officers with particular expertise in the subject matter. Additionally, the Salem Citizens’ Police Academy will also host a “ride along” to participants who attend at least eight of the ten class sessions. This ride along allows students to “patrol” with officers during their regular tour of duty. Students will also be given an opportunity to utilize the department’s firing range under the supervision of a police firearms instructor.

The Citizens’ Police Academy will be held at the Salem police station on Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. There is no fee for attending the Citizens’ Police Academy and it is open to any Salem resident who is eighteen years of age or older. Class size is limited 30 students. Applications are available at the Salem Police Department or online at www.salempd.net. In order to be considered for the class beginning on March 28, 2018 completed applications must be submitted no later than March 14th, 2018.
