Walk In Their Shoes, A Citizen Academy with Lewiston Police
You see them zooming past you in the streets and in the newspaper doing their job. What’s it like behind the scenes for a police officer? Citizens can find out during next year’s Citizens Police Academy.
The academy is next year, but now is the time to sign up. It’s 11 weeks of education about criminal justice and crime prevention. Lewiston Police use these courses as a way to strengthen a partnership between citizens and police while providing an overview of the police department. The course also includes a ten hour ride-along with an officer.
Classes are Tuesday evenings from 6-9 p.m. You can pick up an application for the academy at the Lewiston Police Department’s website and either hand deliver or mail to 1224 F. St. Applications are due January 20th.
