The Antioch Police Department Citizens Academy is accepting applications


The Antioch Police Department Citizens Academy provides a unique opportunity for the participants to meet the officers and employees that protect and serve our community. The intent of the Citizens Law Enforcement Academy is to educate the community on the duties, training, investigation techniques and situations police officers and other members of the Police Department may encounter. Participants of the academy will be given the opportunity to experience some of the activities Law Enforcement Officers and department personnel perform as part of their duties. Hands-on experiences include fingerprinting, and problem solving. Interact with our K-9 and handler, and ride-along with an officer. Join us for a unique learning experience.

Classes will be on the following Wednesdays from 6pm to 9pm: Oct. 4, 11, 18, 25, Nov. 8 and 15, and Dec. 6
