(Dublin, OH) The annual Dublin Citizen’s Police Academy is now accepting applications for its 12-week program.
Police roles and process have always been of interest to the community. This program gives insight into the interworking of the Dublin Division of Police, while opening the lines of communication and debunking some of the widely accepted myths about police work.
Sessions will focus on typical policing activities and include areas such as: arrest process, search and seizure, traffic stops, building searches, and a firearms live-shooting experience.
“We want to give residents an inside look into our police department,” said Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg. “Our community is very engaged and involved. We want to continue our partnership with the community by providing a chance for them to learn more about law enforcement.”
The intent of the Citizen’s Police Academy is to meet the Police officers in a warm, neutral settling. Throughout the program, participants see past the uniform and develop relationships with the friendly faces behind the badge. Participants leave the program as informed citizens with a new understanding of Dublin’s community based efforts.
The program is set to meet on Thursday evenings at the Dublin Justice Center, 6565 Commerce Pkwy.
The Division of Police will be accepting applications until Friday, July 12 at 5pm.
