The purpose of the Citizens Police Academy is to foster better communications between citizens and police through education. A well-informed citizen is more likely to share their experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing the citizens understanding of the role and function of their police department, officials noted.
Department officials encourage citizens to apply for the next Academy, which begins Thursday, Sept. 20. There is no cost to participate, and the academy meets every Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. in the courtroom of the LPD. The deadline to register is Friday, Sept. 14.
You must be 18 years or older, a citizen or business owner in Lebanon and have no felony convictions.
To apply in person, you may come to the LPD at 406 Tennessee Blvd. in Lebanon, or you may apply online at www.lebanonpd.org. For further information, contact Academy Coordinator Officer P.J. Hardy at 453-4398 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
