The Academy is fun and also serves to open up communications between t…he community and the departments, promoting an exchange of information and ideas.
Each session begins with classroom instruction and is followed by interactive activities. Participants get hands-on experience with public safety equipment and vehicles, as well as exposure to specialized units within the agency.
