Citizens Police Academy now accepting applications

LITTLE ELM (February 5, 2018) While never truly faltering in its support, strong backing for the work of the Little Elm Police Department appears more solid than ever as residents have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the inherent dangers, and critical necessity, of the job.

                A program that gives civilians a closer look at the department’s inner workings has begun accepting applications online, says Sgt. Marcus Maxie.  Applications for participation in the sixth annual Citizens Police Academy are now being accepted and reviewed.

The program is open to all Little Elm residents, owners of Little Elm businesses, and people who volunteer for any of Little Elm’s various programs.  Applicants from outside these groups may be added if room is available.  Deadline to apply is 8 p.m., Friday, March 9.

                Weekly classes start on Thursday, March 22 and continue consecutively for 14 weeks, usually on Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Little Elm Public Safety Building, 88 West Eldorado Parkway.   Exceptions to the Thursday class schedule, usually moved to Saturdays, will be announced as the class progresses. 

                Participants will be exposed to a wide variety of information related to virtually every aspect of law enforcement, including the internal operations of the Department, the hiring and promotion process, Traffic Division operations, accident investigations, the use of radar and LIDAR, Patrol Division procedures, SWAT operations, and the court process. 

Specialized sections will cover the Crime Scene Investigation, Narcotics Investigation, Street Crimes and Community Policing along with a variety of other law enforcement tasks. Participants will have the opportunity to go to the range and fire weapons used by patrol officers, including pistol, rifle and shotgun.

Of most interest among previous attendees are “ride alongs” with on-duty officers during regular patrols to observe actual field operations.

Background checks are completed on potential attendees.  As in the previous five years of the program, seats will fill up quickly.  Anyone interested in participating should register by visiting /FormCenter/Police-4/Citizens-Police-Academy-48
