SBPD Taking Applications for the Next Citizens Academy
SANTA BARBARA, CA – August 18, 2014
The Santa Barbara Police Department is now taking applications for the next Citizens Academy which will begin on September 3, 2014. This will be a bilingual Academy, taught in both English and Spanish languages. The Citizens Academy is a great way to learn about the Santa Barbara Police Department, police work, and our community. During the eight-week program participants will be exposed to police training, investigative techniques, and technology. They will also have the opportunity to ride-along with officers on patrol.
Classes will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. until October 22nd, at a location still to be determined. This program is very popular and class size is limited. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and there is no cost to participate. For more information please contact Officer Jon Reyes at (805) 897-3748 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
