OCPD Accepting Applications for Citizens Police Academy

OCPD Accepting Applications for Citizens Police Academy

OCEAN CITY, MD  (February 16, 2016): The Ocean City Police Department is currently accepting applications for the next Citizens Police Academy. The Citizens Police Academy begins classes on March 15, 2016 at 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. and continues every Tuesday for ten weeks. The Citizens Police Academy is not only for citizens that wish to see the inner workings of the resort police department, but also serves as the initial training needed to become a volunteer Auxiliary Officer. 

The Citizens Police Academy was created over 15 years ago to enable citizens to learn more about the Ocean City Police Department and build relationships between the police and the community. During this course, students meet a variety of officers to learn about criminal law, traffic enforcement, evidence collection, firearms, arrest procedures, narcotics enforcement and many other topics. Students also participate in practical scenarios, which afford citizens hands-on opportunity to understand various law enforcement applications.

“Educating citizens about their police department and building closer relationships with our residents and visitors is the best crime prevention tool that we have,” said Chief Ross Buzzuro. “Citizens Police Academy not only benefits our community but also benefits the officers of the Ocean City Police Department.”

The Citizens Police Academy has a limited class size of 25 participants and applicants must be 18 years of age to participate. Citizens that are interested must complete a written application and give permission for the Ocean City Police Department to conduct a background check. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, March 8. For more information about the Citizens Police Academy or to receive an application, please visit orcontact the OCPD Public Affairs Office at 410-520-5395

No not a dumbass comment you imbecile. A perfectly sensible comment you ignoramus. When someone is released from prison MORON they need to involve themselves in a hobby or a past time around positive influences away from drug and alcohol. It's things like you that belong locked in cages because you offer not a thing positive to society.
