The free eight-week course will begin on March 4, 2020, at the West Hartford Police Department.
The West Hartford Police Department will be holding a Citizen’s Police Academy in the West Hartford Police Department Training Room, 103 Raymond Rd., on Wednesday nights from 6-9 p.m., beginning March 4, 2020 and ending April 29, 2020, for a total of eight classes. There is no fee associated with this class.
This initiative will foster the relationship between the citizens of West Hartford and their police department by an abbreviated semester of law enforcement awareness education.
The eight-week semester will offer a myriad of educational classes presented by the sworn and civilian members of our Department. Topics will be presented in one to three hour segments. Each instructor shall design a presentation to be offered during the semester.
The purpose of each class topic is to make our residents more familiar with the procedures, practices, problems, concerns, and challenges that face law enforcement officers in the performance of their duties. Our goal is to allow our citizens, through education, to become more informed of what our Department has to offer.
