Morris Township Police Department's Citizen Police Academy

2011-10-24 16.46.40

Have you ever been interested in learning more about how a police department operates and responds to incidents within your academy? We are now accepting applications for the 2019 Citizen Police Academy. Follow the link below and submit your application by August 23rd, 2019. The academy starts on September 9th. It will run every Monday night for 10 weeks from 6:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M.

The purpose of the Citizen Police Academy is to give the public a working knowledge and understanding of the operations of our police department and of law enforcement in general. Some topics of instruction will include organizational structure, use of force, drug trends and police response, arrest, search and seizure, motor vehicle stops and officer safety. A ride-along program will be implemented to allow each participant to observe patrol functions first hand. It is our intention that the graduates of the Morris Township Citizen Police Academy will gain an awareness and appreciation of the services we provide. We also hope to collectively create an even stronger partnership between our police department and the community we serve which in turn will allow our graduates to become advocated for the law enforcement community as a whole.
