Enrollment Now Open for New Citizen’s Police Academy Class

 

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office today announced enrollment is open for the 22nd class of the Citizen’s Police Academy, a ten-week course designed to give residents a working knowledge of law enforcement policies and tactics.  Bergen County residents 18 and older are eligible to participate. 

“One of the most important components of law enforcement is fostering strong relationships with the community,” Sheriff Michael Saudino said.  “Our Citizen’s Police Academy gives residents firsthand knowledge of the important work police do to enhance public safety and protect Bergen County residents.”

BCSO’s Citizen’s Police Academy is designed to educate participants on the functions of the Sheriff’s Office and the role the agency plays in Bergen County.  The academy is offered in a classroom-style format with demonstrations of equipment and tactics used by law enforcement.

Participants learn about the tools officers use in a broad range of areas including motor vehicle stops, medical operations, disaster preparedness, homicide investigations, K-9 patrol and detection, fire safety and crime scene analysis.  The class will also receive tours of the Bergen County Jail, the Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI).

The next citizen’s police academy class is slated to begin on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Bergen County Jail located at 160 So. River St. Hackensack. Class meets once a week at various locations around the county and concludes with a graduation ceremony.

The deadline to register is Friday, October 12, 2018.  Please visit our website at www.bcsd.us and click on Community Outreach > Adult Programs, or click here to download an application. 

For more information, please contact the Community Policing Unit at 201-336-3540.
