VACAVILLE — The Vacaville Police Department on Tuesday announced its Community Law Enforcement Academy for 2014.
Members of the community who live or work in Vacaville are invited to apply for the eight-week program, according to a news release from the department. Sessions for the academy’s 22nd year begin Feb. 6.
The eight sessions will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Police Department, 660 Merchant St.
Attendees will learn about the operations of the department, from patrol to narcotics enforcement, communications center operations to K-9 services, and from gang and crime suppression to crime prevention, the release states. In addition to eight classroom sessions, a patrol ride-along is offered to all who attend the academy.
The academy is designed to give those who attend new insights into police services and a greater appreciation for the men and women who provide these services.
