Maumelle Police Accepting Applications For Citizen's Police Academy

A 7 week course designed to give you an overview of how the police department operates.
MAUMELLE, AR- The Maumelle Police Department is providing citizens with an opportunity to see first hand what the force does on the job.

The department is now accepting applications for its Citizen's Police Academy program. It's a 7 week course designed to give you an overview of how the police department operates. Citizens who are in the program will get to go on ride-alongs with officers, learn about narcotics crimes, criminal investigations, firearms and much more.

"It's a very interesting program. We cover a wide range of topics. It's not meant to make people police officers, but it's more geared towards people in the community who are interested in what we do," says Capt. Jim Hansard, Maumelle Police.

Through the academy, Maumelle Police hope to educate and foster a partnership with the community to work toward creating a safer environment.
