Citizens Police Academy Norwich Police Department

Those who work in law enforcement often wish the public had a better understanding of the day-to-day operations of a police department. The Norwich Police Department is making that wish a reality by offering a 13-week class for Norwich residents to learn about their Police Department. This course covers all that goes on in the Norwich Police Department and there is no charge for the course.
Our Citizens' Academy continues to thrive and involve all members of the Department. Since 2001 several Norwich residents and business owners have attended. The Chief of Police and seven Police Officers participate as instructors, helping to dispel myths, show where tax dollars are spent and give a realistic view of day to day operations of the Norwich Police.
Class of 2002-2003The course involves classroom instruction as well as several hands on activities involving the Breathalyzer, traffic RADAR and firearms. The course includes shoot/don't shoot scenarios putting the student in the shoes of an officer making split second decisions. There is also a ride along scheduled for students to go on patrol with Norwich Officers. The Citizens Academy culminates with a graduation ceremony in the Common Council Chambers with Members of the Council and Mayor in attendance.

If you are a Norwich resident or business owner and would like to attend the Academy you should contact your Ward Alderman, the Mayor or the Chief of Police to be placed on the list for the next academy session.
