Carbondale PD taking applications for Citizens Police Academy

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

The Carbondale, Illinois Police Department is taking applications for its Citizens Police Academy (CPA). 

The goal of the CPA is to spread information to citizens, to make them well-informed, and to create a growing nucleus of responsibility. 

Those who take part in the CPA have the potential of influencing public opinions about police practices and services. 

CPA is broken down into two components: Basic and Advanced Classes. 

Each academy will have five sessions. 

For the Basic Academy, students will be focusing on an overview of police department divisions, low level patrol tactics and traffic stops, introduction to investigations and crime scenes. 

The advanced level will consist of higher level patrol tactics and traffic stops, bomb squad presentation, court perspective and firearms familiarization. This class will be available to those who have completed the basic class or to prior CPA graduates. 

CPA is free and for those who are over the age of 18. Every applicant will undergo a background check. 

Please contact Officer Randy Mathis at 457-3200 ext. 402 or rmathis@ci.carbondale.il.us
