West Hartford Police
Department Citizen's Academy 2016
The West Hartford Police Dept. will be holding the 4th annual
Behind the Badge: Citizen’s Police Academy, to be held
at West Hartford Police Department, Training Room, 103 Raymond Rd. on Wednesday nights beginning September 21st, 2016 and ending November 9th, 2016 from 6:00-9:00pm for a total
of eight classes. This initiative will foster the relationship between the
citizens of West Hartford and their police department by an abbreviated semester
of law enforcement awareness education.
Adult members of the community will be invited to apply for acceptance in the
program. Those 21 years of age and older with clean criminal backgrounds shall
be permitted to experience the best instruction. Class size will be held to
approximately 25 participants.
The eight week semester will offer a myriad of educational classes presented
by the sworn and civilian members of our Department. Topics will be presented in
one to three hour segments. Each instructor shall design a presentation to be
offered during the semester. The purpose of each class topic is to make our
residents more familiar with the procedures, practices, problems, concerns, and
challenges that face law enforcement officers in the performance of their
duties. Our goal is to allow our citizens, through education, to become more
informed of what our Department has to offer.
