More About Citizen’s Police Academy Accepting Applications

The Greenwich Police Department is accepting applications for the 2019 Citizen’s Police Academy Fall Session. This fall’s program features a new, condensed schedule.

The 8-week program will commence on Wednesday, Sept. 18 and meets once a week on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Greenwich Police Department.

Graduation will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Completed applications and a copy of a motor vehicle operator’s license must be received at the Greenwich Police Department Community Impact Section no later than Thursday, Sept. 12.

The Citizen’s Police Academy provides Greenwich Residents with a first-hand overview of both law enforcement and community-related functions of their Police Department. Topics of instruction include: Introduction to Policing, Court Procedures/After the Arrest, 911 Awareness, Use of Force, Domestic Violence Investigations, Scams/Fraud, Patrol Operations, Community Impact Section, Narcotics Investigations, Motor Vehicle Stops/DUI, Criminal Investigations/Special Victims, Crime Scenes (CSI), Special Response Unit, Marine Patrol.

Instructors for the program are highly-trained and experienced Greenwich Police Officers. In addition to participating in role-playing exercises, attendees will accompany on-duty police personnel within the Marine Section and Patrol Division. Ride-a-longs are scheduled beyond regular class times. A demonstration at the Police Firing Range will allow recruits to participate in mock scenarios where an officer may or may not have to fire their weapon.

Applicants must be Greenwich residents or Town employees, 18 years of age or older.

There is no fee for the program; however, the Department requests that applicants be committed to the full eight week program.

The class size is limited to 40 students. Due to the high demand for this course, qualified applicants will be subject to a lottery drawing to determine the final class roster.

A criminal history background check will be performed on all qualified applicants. Accepted recruits will be contacted upon completion of the background check.

Applications may be obtained in person at the Greenwich Police Department front desk or downloaded from the Town of Greenwich website by visiting click for details. Questions should be directed to Sgt. John Thorme, Session Coordinator at the Greenwich Police Community Impact Office at jthorme@greenwichct.org
