Oftentimes people know of law enforcement only by what they see on
TV, like "Law and Order," "CSI" and "Cops." The Citizen Police
Academy offers the public will an opportunity to be a part of the
police by being up close and personal with them. Students will get a
chance to ride one shift with police and to see in real life what
their police officers do for them and the risks that they take.
Police work is an ever-changing profession that the public can watch
change. The local police would like to have anyone interested in law
enforcement or people who would like to know what their tax dollars
go to join the class.
Applications may be picked up at the Lincoln Police Department
and must be returned no later than July 15. The classes are open to
Logan County residents. Applicants must be at least 17 years of age
with no prior criminal record.
