Want to have a better understanding of law enforcement? The Quincy Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy may be for you.
Deb Beebe, the police department Pro-Act Unit assistant, said they are still accepting applications for their ten week course at City Hall. She said the main purpose of the academy is to build relationships between the police department and citizens. Also, Beebe added you will get a taste of what it’s like for police officers in the field.
“We’ll do a mock vehicle stop one night, so the participants will be able to suit up and go out and pull someone over and so experience that,” said Beebe. “We’ll go out on Maine street and do a little radar, so we’ll catch some speeders out there.”
The course will be held on Thursdays from 6-9 p.m. starting February 28.
