    36th session of Lakes Area Citizen's Police Academy starts March 5, 2014.


    The role of a police officer has always been of interest to the average citizen. The film industry has capitalized on this curiosity and television shows and movies about police officers are staples in the entertainment industry, but how accurate is the information they provide about law enforcement?

    The creation of the Lakes Area Citizens Police Academy 18 years ago affords citizens the opportunity to learn about their local police department and take a behind the scenes look at what law enforcement work is all about. Participants also gain an insiderís knowledge of the police agency, enabling them to make informed decisions on issues affecting the police and the community. The Lakes Area Citizens Police Academy is a joint venture between the Milford, Novi, Walled Lake, South Lyon, and Wolverine Lake Police Departments.

    Applications are currently being accepted for the FREE Lakes Area Citizens Police Academy, scheduled to begin on March 5, 2014. Participants must be 18 years of age or older and a resident or business operator in one of the participating jurisdictions.

    The 30-hour program format includes practical demonstrations, hands-on exercises, as well as presentations. Participants will tour the Oakland County Medical Examinerís Office, the Michigan State Police DNA lab, and the 52-1 District Court. They will also view a K-9 demonstration, take a turn using the Firearms Training System (FATS), and have the opportunity to participate in a ride-along with a police officer.

    Classes are scheduled on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:00pm, March 5 through May 14, 2013. The first class will meet at the Novi Police Training Center. The registration deadline is February 20, 2014. For more information contact Administrative Assistant Laurie Demko at (248) 684-1815.
