The Hopkinsville Police Department will be conducting its 18th Citizen’s Police Academy starting September 1, 2016.  The 8 week long program highlights the activities of the department and gives the public a chance to see what the department does on a daily basis.

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 18th 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 until Wednesday, August 24, 2016.

A brief background check will be conducted on each applicant and each class member will be notified of his/her selection. The academy is limited to twenty (20) students and all students must be 18 years of age or older. The class meets one day a week for 8 weeks at 6:00 pm and each class lasts approximately 2 hours.
