Metro Citizen Police Academy begins tonight

By RACHEL STULTS • Staff Writer (tennessean) • April 15, 2008 The 62 citizens who have enrolled in the 21st session of the Metropolitan Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy will begin training tonight. Participants will meet Tuesday nights for the next 12 weeks to learn about police work from the perspective of veteran Metro officers with a wide range of departmental experience. Electives, including a ride along with an officer and basic firearm instruction, will also be offered. Eight of the 62 people enrolled are police volunteer chaplains. Since the police department began offering Citizen Police Academy classes in 1995, 1,075 people have graduated from the program.
