Citizens’ Police Awareness Academy

The Police Department holds Citizens’ Police Awareness Academies at least once every year, to develop an informed group of citizens who will make others aware of the challenges that face the Police Department. Topics include: accident investigations, K-9 demonstrations, handling medical emergencies, juvenile law, domestic violence, and much more. We always encourage feedback and ideas from these citizens on what might make the Department more responsive to our community’s needs.

If you would like more information about enrolling in a future session, please contact Community Services Officer Wilkins at: 860-242-5501 ext. 5580 or email him at
