Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a police officer?
Do you want to gain a better understanding of the issues facing local law enforcement?
Now is your chance…the Westfield Police Citizens Academy is accepting applications through July 14th for the 2016 class.
Here is what recent grad, Andrea Huisden, had to say about the experience:
“As part of a multicultural family and a fairly new resident of Westfield (since 2012), when policing tactics in other parts of the country began receiving more scrutiny, I wanted to know more about the philosophies and practices of my own community police department. WPD’s Citizens Academy enabled me to establish relationships with officers and leadership, creating an invaluable line of communication. It has helped me view the police as partners with me in ensuring Westfield remains a welcoming, diverse, safe community in which to live and raise my children.”
Space is limited so don’t miss your chance to participate!
To be eligible, you must fill out an application and pass a background test.
The next class will be held August 11 – October 27; applications will be due by July 14th.
