The Perrysburg Police Division is planning to conduct a Citizen’s Police Academy in the fall of 2012.
The tentative dates and times will be 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesdays from Sept. 5 through Oct. 24.
The academy provides an opportunity for citizens to gain a deeper understanding of the organizational structure and the various duties, functions, and services performed by members of the Perrysburg Police Division. The academy utilizes classroom presentation and hands-on participation in exposing the students to the wide range of situations and service calls that both sworn and civilian employees of the Police Division encounter and respond to on a daily basis.
The topics of discussion during the eight-week academy include the organizational structure of the Police Division, the role of civilian support services, traffic enforcement, accident investigation, search and seizure law, search warrants, a drug investigation scenario, a mock trial, firearms training, use of force policy, less lethal and lethal force issues and community oriented policing.
Participants in the academy must be 18 years of age or older, and reside or work within the City of Perrysburg.
For more information about the Citizen’s Police Academy or to add your name to the list of prospective academy students please contact Academy Commander Sergeant Brian Gregg at 419-872-8001 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The members of the Perrysburg Police Division appreciate the opportunity to share with the citizens of Perrysburg, a deeper perspective of the inner workings, the equipment and the staff of their Police Division.
