MNPD Citizen Police Academy accepting applications

The Metro Nashville Police Department is now accepting applications for the 20th session of its Citizen Police Academy, which begins its 12-week run on May 29. Classes will be held on Tuesday nights from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. through August 14, in the community room of the Hermitage Precinct (3701 James Kay Lane). Because class size is limited, interested persons are urged to apply immediately. The deadline for applications is May 18.

Participants will learn about the intricacies of police work through the perspective of a variety of guest speakers, including members of the police department’s specialized components. Electives, including a ride along with a police officer and basic firearms instruction, will also be offered.

Each applicant should commit to attending at least ten of the 12 sessions, be a Davidson County resident, at least 21 years old and have no arrest record, excluding minor traffic violations. While completion of the course gives citizens an understanding of the workings of the police department, it does not make a participant a certified law enforcement officer, nor is it designed to train citizens to perform law enforcement duties. Applications can be completed and submitted via the MNPD Web site. Persons desiring an application by mail or fax are invited to call Michelle Crowder at (615) 862-7811.
