The classes are taught by members of the department, which gives the class members a chance to meet officers in a positive environment. Topics covered will include Patrol, Investigations, K-9 Demonstrations, Firearms Training, and Crime Stoppers just to name a few. Each class participant may also attend a Saturday live fire exercise at the department’s firearms range. The class culminates with a graduation ceremony and dinner, with certificates awarded to all that complete the course.
If anyone is interested in being a member of this class, applications can be picked up at the Hopkinsville Police Department on North Main Street or downloaded here. Applications will be accepted at the police department.
