Citizens Patrol AcademyLooking for a way to assist the local Mill Creek Police Department, but not quite ready to become a full-fledged police officer? Try out the Police Citizens Academy.

Beginning March 28, the Mill Creek Police Department will host its third annual Police Citizens Academy, a 10-week program designed to educate and connect with Mill Creek residents and members of surrounding communities. Each week will focus on a different topic, such as SWAT, K9, patrol procedures and criminal investigations, and officers will share insights into their work.

Classes will be held on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the City Hall North, Large Community Room, 15720 Main St.

“I signed up for the Citizens Academy because I have an interest in criminal justice and I wanted to be more involved in our community,” said Carmen Fisher, who was in the Police Citizens Academy’s second cohort. “I enjoyed learning about all aspects of police work, and the officers took time to introduce themselves and get to know us. I’m looking forward engaging with our community through the Citizens Patrol.”

The program is free. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and be able to pass a basic background check. Class size is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Visit www.cityofmillcreek.com/PoliceCitizensAcademy for more information and to apply.
