The Macomb Police Department is proud to announce the graduation of local participants in our inaugural Citizen’s Police Academy. The 10-week program met once a week and exposed participants to many aspects of law enforcement.
Participants spent time learning about many areas of the department including, but not limited to, the use of force, criminal law, evidence and criminal cases, as well as the department’s Strategic Response Team, and K-9 and Field Training Programs. Participants also gained a unique inside look at MPD facilities, equipment and got to meet the officers that keep our community safe.
The department will begin offering this course twice a year, one spring and one fall session. The next course will start on February 2, 2017. Interested applicants can visit the Macomb Police Department’s web page (www.macombpolice.com/mpd-programs/CPA) to check out our curriculum and download an application. Each class is limited to 20 participants and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Applications for the spring 2017 class must be received by January 15, 2017.
