The Jackson Police Department’s next Citizens’ Police Academy is scheduled for March 14.
The mission of the Citizens’ Police Academy is to educate and inform the community, to provide a forum for police and community interaction, to identify community problems, needs and concerns; and to foster a partnership with the community and the department in working toward creating a safer community.
In each session, a qualified instructor will explain how each division of the Jackson Police Department operates. The weeklong event includes a tour of the Public Safety Communications Center, an overview of the Community Relations/Crisis Intervention Unit, a S.W.A.T and Bomb Squad exhibition and Driving and Firearms Simulator training.
This Academy is conducted from 6-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturday from 9-11:30 a.m. at the Police Firing Range for the SWAT /Bomb presentation and firearm instruction.
