Please join us tomorrow from 9-10am at the Republic Police Department for the first Chamber Chat in 2020! Lieutenant Jamie Burks will be discussing the Annual Republic Citizens Police Academy.
The Citizen Police Academy provides community members with an inside look at local law enforcement. While attending the academy, students will be introduced to a variety of topics as part of the curriculum. The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to a traditional police academy.
Classes are taught mostly by police officers. Academy participants will have the opportunity to meet the Chief of Police and staff members, and are encouraged to ask questions and express ideas. The goal is to strengthen the relationship between the Police Department and the community by giving citizens a better understanding of police operations, and how we can work together.
