The Concord Police Department is currently accepting applications for the next Citizen’s Academy, which will begin on Thursday, April 2, 2020.
The Citizen’s Academy is a 10-week program that takes place one night a week from 5-7 p.m. Participants will participate in a variety of activities, including classroom instruction, demonstrations, and trips to other organizations involved with the Department and the community. Participants will also have the option to go on a ride along, and/or sit in with the Dispatch Center.
During the Citizen’s Academy, participants will be exposed to the glamour and excitement they associate with police work, along with the processes and parts of the job that are less glamorous but vital to day to day operations.
Upon completion of the course, participants should have a better understanding of the profession. The Department hopes that they will have an interest in contributing to the community through volunteer opportunities.
Anyone interested in being part of the Citizen’s Academy can access more information, instructions, and an application online. Please note that a limited background check is required. The application forms and releases can be dropped off at the station, or printed and mailed to: Concord NH Police Department, 35 Green St. Concord, NH 03301, ATTN: Officer Ryan D. Howe. Any questions can be directed to Officer Howe at 603-225-8600 x3738.
