The program is designed to give the average citizen a better understanding of the criminal justice system, in particular, the role police officers play in the community. Throughout the academy, students are presented information on several key law enforcement topics. Such topics may include police academy training, crime and vehicle codes, narcotics investigations, the role of the court system, use of force issues, evidence collection, and much more.
The Academy is free and will be held every Wednesday from April 4, 2018 through May 16, 2018. The classes will be held each Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Hampton Community Center, 3101 McCully Road, Allison Park.
Applications can be picked up at the Hampton Township Police Department at 3101 McCully Road beginning January 2, 2018. Please complete and return the applications no later than February 28, 2018, to be considered for the academy. All participants will be contacted via phone or email with additional information, if selected. Please join us for a unique, behind the scenes experience into the world of law enforcement.
