Now Accepting Applications!
The Revere Police Department is accepting applications for the Citizens Police Academy, which will allow residents to get a look at police operations in weekly classes this spring. The Citizens Police Academy is designed to familiarize citizens with the operation and function of the Revere Police Department. Participants will be instructed by members of the Department as to the responsibilities of their various units. Citizens will gain an understanding of the challenges facing law enforcement in today's society. The goal of the Academy is to develop a unique partnership between citizens and the Police Department that benefits both.
The tentative agenda includes a tour of the police station, a ride along with officers, a K9 demonstration, and SWAT Team demonstrations. Participants will also learn about the Department's Patrol Division, Criminal Investigation Devision, Narcotic Investigations; and topics such as gang intervention and domestic violence.
The Revere Police Department Citizens Police Academy is offered to all Revere residents 21 years of age or older. Due to the sensitivity of the content of classroom discussion, simple background checks are mandated and the Police Chief approves the final selection of participants. Candidates must be able to commit to the class schedule, only one excused absence will be allowed in order to graduate and receive a Certificate of Completion. Class size will be limited to 20 people.
This will be a 9 week program. The Academy will meet once per week on Wednesday nights starting at 6:00 PM at the Revere Police Department Community Room.
