The 2014 Citizens Academy is now accepting applications for enrollment. If you are like most folks, you probably haven’t had the occasion to learn much about the workings of your police department, the criminal justice system, or the emergency response system in your community. For Richland citizens, your police department offers an annual twelve-session Citizens’ Police Academy which begins in January 7th and continues into March 25th. The Academy classes are held Tuesday night of each week, and one Saturday session toward the end of the Academy. Attendance is limited; priority attendance will be given to current Richland residents and those who have not attended before. These positions are filled on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you’re interested don’t delay! To apply, complete the app below and mail to Richland PD, Attn. Ofc. Rick Kane, PO BOX 190, MS-17, Richland, WA 99352, or drop it off at the station.
