Sign up for citizen's police academy by Dec. 20
This winter, Rosemount residents have an opportunity to get close to the action involved in policing of the community — a lot closer than watching a police drama on TV. The Rosemount Police Department will hold another session of its Citizens Police Academy on Thursdays from Jan. 16 to Feb. 27.
The program offers insight into modern-day policing in the community through classroom and hands-on training conducted by Rosemount officers. Training will involve a variety of topics including an overview of department operations, a tour of the police facility, a review of patrol operations, driving under the influence arrest (D.U.I.), narcotics presentation, investigations, crime scene processing, M.A.A.G. and firearms, use of force/self-defense, school-liaison duties, arrests, search and seizure issues, traffic stops, community policing/crime prevention, and the chaplain program.
At the completion of the program, students will have the opportunity to ride along with an officer. The goal of the program is to help each graduate will feel informed, have an understanding about the operations of the department, and know the person behind the badge. Through relationships and partnerships the Police and community provide a safer Rosemount.
The academy is free and open to individuals who live or work in the city of Rosemount and are at least 18 years of age. All participants will be subject to a criminal background check. The deadline to apply is Dec. 20. For more information visit www.ci.rosemount.mn.us/cpa or contact community service officer Julie Pulkrabek, firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-322-2012.
