Norwalk Citizens’ Police Academy Set for September

Posted on August 22, 2017 by admin


I want to make you aware that the Norwalk Police will, once again, host the popular six-week long Norwalk Citizens’ Police Academy course.

I loved taking this course two years ago and I learned so much about how the police hire, train, work and handle the difficult and varied challenges they encounter. The course gave me a fuller understanding and deeper appreciation for the work our dedicated police officers do upholding the law and protecting us.

This year, the course begins on Thursday, September 14, and is scheduled to meet twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The program will last six weeks and includes a tour of police department headquarters, meetings and discussions with veteran officers, demonstrations on techniques and training methods used by the department and a ride-along with an on-duty officer, among other things.

Space is limited and advance registration is required.  For more information, or to register, please contact Norwalk Police Lt. Terry Blake at 203-354-3074.
