Police Department's spring Citizen's Academy set to start

The Midwest City Police Department's 31st Citizen's Academy class is set to start in April. 

The academy is designed for citizens who are interested in taking a look at the behind-the-scenes operations of the Police Department.  Class participants will get a look at many different programs and resources the department has to offer.

Activities throughout the academy will include tours of the department facility, jail, 911 emergency center, patrol and K-9 presentations, overviews of the forensic labs, defensive tactics, community action program, motor demo, detective presentations, swat and bomb units overview.

In addition, there will also be a DUI education night and crisis intervention presentation.

The academy meets one night a week from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for thirteen weeks.  Currently, the academy is set for Thursday nights.

The academy is free, but, space is limited.  Participants will receive a polo shirt, class photo, graduation certificate and photo DVD of their class.

The class is open to people 21 years of age or older who live or work in Midwest City.
