HPD's Second Citizen’s Police Academy Registration Open

by Sgt. Matthew Waugh
September 14, 2015

This will be a hands-on, interactive, behind-the-scenes program taught by instructors who will share their unique perspective on law enforcement.

The Holliston Police Department has scheduled its second Citizen’s Police Academy for September 15th through November 10th.  The focus of this nine-week academy is to educate citizens about the Holliston Police Department, its organization, operations and role in the community.  Participants gain an understanding of police department responsibilities and the laws that govern it.  The concept of the Citizens Police Academy involves opening the Holliston Police Department to the public, and showing citizens exactly what we do and how we do it.  Given our commitment to the community and proactive problem solving, we see the Citizens Police Academy as an effective way of bringing law enforcement and the public together in an informal, educational forum.

As a result of attending, graduates of the Citizens Police Academy will be better equipped to assess safety issues and share with others their knowledge of law enforcement practices and policies.  Classes will be taught by members of the police department and other individuals in the criminal justice field.  This will be a hands-on, interactive, behind-the-scenes program taught by instructors who will share their unique perspective on law enforcement.  Topics covered will include: crime scene investigations, narcotics investigations, traffic crash investigations, traffic enforcement, use of force tactics, firearm simulator, OUI detection and enforcement, and an introduction to the K9 unit.  A police ride-along, which will be individually scheduled, will also be offered during the session.

There is no cost to attend the Academy and it is open to all residents 17 and older.  Classes will be held Tuesday evenings, 6pm-9pm in the John E. Johnson Memorial Training Room at the police department.  Applicants must have a clean criminal history and background checks are done on all applicants.  Unsuitable candidates need not apply.  Accepted applicants are expected to attend every class, as space is limited.  Those interested are asked to email Sergeant Matthew Waugh at Waugh@HollistonPolice.com.
