Chief Robert Irving is pleased to announce that the Wayland Police Department will conduct a Citizen Police Academy beginning on October 6, 2015. This eight-week program is designed to teach interested Wayland residents about the various tasks that are performed by Wayland police officers in the community.
In addition to a tour of the Public Safety Building, participants will be exposed to topics such as; powers of arrest, O.U.I. enforcement, motor vehicle law, domestic violence, the court process, detective services and patrol procedures. There will also be a presentation on the history of the Wayland Police Department. As part of the course each student will “ride-along” for part of a shift with a Wayland police officer. The course is designed to give interested citizens a better understanding of police operations in Wayland and the value of the investment made for public safety.
Space is limited for this course; applications are available at the Wayland Police Department or by calling the Citizen Police Academy director, Detective Sergeant Jamie D. Berger, at 508-358-1722 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I encourage any interested citizen of Wayland, age 18 and over, to consider attending the Wayland Citizen Police Academy. Classes will be held in the training room at the Public Safety Building from 7-9pm.
