Parker area residents are invited to attend the Parker Police Department’s eight-week citizen academy program. This unique program gives participants firsthand information about how the police department operates. Classes will focus on criminal law, the drug task force, evidence collection, dispatch, firearms training (optional), traffic laws, accident reconstruction, DUI laws, Taser demonstrations, DARE and many other topics. All attendees will also be invited to participate in a
graduation at the end of the program.
The classroom work, combined with field trips and tours, begins Thursday, April 12 and requires a commitment of one night a week from 6 to 10 p.m. for eight weeks. All classes will be held on Thursday nights, with one optional Saturday class at the shooting range.
