Culver City Police Citizen’s Police Academy now Accepting Applications

According to the Culver City Police Department, “the Culver City Citizen’s Police Academy is designed to educate residents and local citizens on the various aspects of law enforcement. It is for those interested in learning more about how the Culver City Police Department functions and operates. There are many misconceptions about police duties and the Academy will help dispel these notions and allow community members a closer look at their police department.”

The program is meant to increase communication and encourage interaction between local police officers and the community.  It is not intended to train participants to be police officers.   Graduates of the Academy will gain a good understanding of public safety information and will then hopefully be able to share that understanding with others within the Culver City Real Estate area.

The program is also designed to help citizens gain a better understanding of the different challenges and choices a Culver City Police Officer has to deal with every day.

The Culver City Citizen’s Academy lasts for ten weeks and is set to begin on Wednesday June 26th. The academy includes the opportunity to attend a patrol ride-along, as well as course curriculum on  the Criminal Justice System, Development of a Police Officer, Tactical Options, Traffic Enforcement, Special Responses, Forensics, Investigations, and Community Preparedness.

Those who are selected to attend this year’s Citizen’s Academy will receive a notification by mail and/or phone at least two weeks before classes begin. The selection process includes a limited background check because of security concerns and the sensitive nature of some of the material.

Martin Feinberg, Realtor, encourages all who are interested to download an application online, print and complete it, and then either mail or drop off the completed applications to the Culver City Police Department.  Applications should be marked “attention Officer Marissa Yabko” and must be turned in by June 12, 2019 to be considered.
