Citizen’s Police Academy Reunion April 24
The Lakewood Police Department announces a reunion for all graduates of LPD’s Citizens’ Police Academy on April 24 at City Hall in the auditorium, beginning at 6:30pm. Anyone who has completed the 12-week course is invited to attend, hear an update from the police department, learn about new body camera technology and reconnect with classmates from the past.
The Citizens’ Police Academy is a 12-week course for Lakewood residents or people who work in Lakewood, 21 years of age or older, who are interested in learning more about the Division of Police. Classes are held once a week for 2 hours during the winter months. There is no fee to attend. During the sessions, students are presented with information from a number of speakers to familiarize them with a variety of policing issues in Lakewood. In addition to speakers from the Division of Police, Mayor Summers, the Department of Law, and Judge Carroll also address the class. At the end of each session, the graduates are permitted to schedule a ride-along with a patrol officer for one evening.
