Gloucester Police Launches Citizens Police Academy
Beginning October 27, 2015 and continuing for the next 4 weeks the Gloucester Police Department will be offering its Citizens Police Academy to Gloucester residents age 18 and over. Gloucester Officers will instruct classes on subjects such as domestic violence, motor vehicle law, patrol procedures, accidents, firearms awareness, juvenile and drug problems, and many other topics relevant to police work. The academy will also include a police ride-along, a tour of the Middleton House of Correction, and a K-9 demonstration.
This class experience is designed to bring citizens into the station and give them a clear picture of what it’s like to be a Gloucester Police Officer. Citizens will learn a great deal about all aspects of police work and leave with a true representation of life as a police officer.
Application forms may be picked up at the police station and area businesses. You may drop the completed application off at the front desk of the police station or mail it to: Asst. Chief John McCarthy, Gloucester Police Department, 197 Main Street, Gloucester, MA 01930. We will notify you on or before October 23, 2015. Please feel free to contact Asst. Chief John McCarthy at (978)281-9900 with any questions.
