Claremore Police Department is hosting the 13th annual Citizens Police Academy starting February 22. This is a fun and informative way to learn about the daily life of a police officer. The goal of the Citizen’s Academy is to educate the public and provide a better understanding of how our Police Department functions and operates. Instruction consists of lectures, demonstrations, tours and hands-on training. The hands-on portion of the classes include traffic investigation and enforcement, firearms training and patrol procedures.
The class runs for 11 weeks, meeting each Tuesday evening from 6:30p – 9:30p. The class is FREE! Participants must be at least 21 years old and pass a background check. You even get to do a ride-along upon completion of the course and maybe eat tacos with the cops (see below).
Applications are available at the Claremore Police Department. For more information, contact Captain Litterell at email@example.com.
