Police to offer academy for residentsThe Danville Police Department will be offering a Citizens Police Academy to residents of Danville, beginning in March. The academy is an "all in one day" program that will begin at 8:30 a.m., Monday, March 16.
Participants will learn all about the Danville Police Department, from investigations, patrol, traffic and a demo from the K-9 Unit. Class members will also have an opportunity to visit the Martinez Detention Facility, participate in patrol ride-a-longs and do a mock crime scene.
Those who successfully complete the Citizens Police Academy can apply to become a Volunteer in Policing with the Danville Police Department. These volunteers work in the department's office, at special events and on patrol.
If interested in attending the academy, contact Community Service Officer Shawn Desmond at 314-3705.
