GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich residents with a yen to see what it’s like to patrol, write tickets, and solve crimes can now sign up to ride along with their local police officers.
Greenwich police are taking applications for the spring session of its six-week-long Citizens’ Police Academy.
Among the many areas citizen cadets will get to explore are: patrol operations, 911 awareness, use of force, motor vehicle stops, domestic violence, DUI and accident investigations, fraud, narcotics and the K-9 unit, crime scene forensics, and crime prevention.
The academy offers a two-hour ride-along with officers and three hours of instruction and a ride-along with the Long Island Sound’s marine patrol.
Space is limited and the deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 20.
Applications must be submitted with a copy of the applicant’s driver’s license.
