Prescott PD to Host Fall 2017 Citizens Police Academy

The Prescott Police Department invites community members to get an inside look at how the Department operates by attending a 2017 Citizens Police Academy, held this September.

Participants will experience many aspects of the Prescott Police Department including learning about the hiring process to become a Police Officer, how police recruits are trained at the academy, visiting the Prescott Regional Communications Center, and view demonstrations of K9 and SWAT operations, DUI/Traffic Enforcement and Community Services functions. Participants will have an opportunity to actively participate in a role-playing, high tech video training system (MILO) which tests the judgment and reactions of those assuming the role of a Police Officer. Chief Debora Black added “I am thrilled to offer members of our community the opportunity to know more about policing in Prescott through this informative and exciting program”.

Classes will begin September 12 at 5:30-9:00 PM and continue on each Tuesday until October 17th.

There will be a brief ceremony on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:00 PM, at which time participants will receive a certificate of participation for attending the academy.

Participants must be 21 years of age and a legal U.S. resident. Preference will be given to Prescott residents. The deadline to apply is August 15th.
