What Is It?
The Civilian Police Academy is an eight-week program designed to give participants a working knowledge of the Freeport Police Department. It consists of a series of classes and discussions held on Wednesdays beginning September 12 from 6:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
Typically, there are two academy classes a year and each class size is limited in size. There is no cost to anyone who enrolls. Participants must live, work, or study in the city of Freeport and be 18 years of age.
The classes will provide an in-depth view into various aspects of law enforcement. It is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn about the issues that affect law enforcement efforts in the City of Freeport, and how to develop a partnership with the police department. This program also allows the participant a unique “hands-on” opportunity in a variety of law enforcement tasks and responsibilities
When residents take a more personal interest in their city, and the protection of their community and neighborhoods, they will enjoy a safer and closer relationship with their neighbors. Upon completion of the course, graduates receive a diploma, academy mug, and class photo.
Instructors include members of the Freeport Police Department and guests from other law enforcement agencies.
