Citizen Police Academy application period open through February 24

Want to discover firsthand what it takes to be a police officer, get to know your beat officer and learn more about criminal investigation? Find out by signing up for the Sugar Land Police Department’s Citizens Police Academy.

The 10-week course begins Feb. 27 with students meeting once a week from 7-10 p.m., including weekend courses such as firearm simulations, mock building searches and simulated traffic stops.

While learning about the challenges faced by police officers, laws affecting citizens, the judicial system and emergency management, participants personally interact with officers, detectives and other personnel in a nontraditional law enforcement setting.

The training program consists of classroom and “hands on” instruction designed to provide interested Sugar Land citizens with a working knowledge of the Sugar Land Police Department, its personnel and emergency management operations.

The class is offered free of charge to Sugar Land residents and individuals who work in Sugar Land.  Participants must be at least 18 years old.

Applications will be accepted until Feb. 24.  For more information, visit  www.sugarlandtx.gov/index.aspx?nid=514 or register online at https://volunteer.sugarlandtx.gov.
