The Muhlenberg Township Police Department is again teaming up with the Bern Township Police Department and the Northern Berks Regional Police Department to again offer the Citizens Police Academy to our residents. Although not a police academy to become a police officer, the Citizens Police Academy (CPA) will offer our residents an inside look of the workings of our police departments and the officer’s duties and responsibilities. CPA Attendees will learn how and why police officers do the jobs they do.
Topics to be discussed include: Police structure, police shootings and use of force, legal issues and the law, crime scene investigations, patrol operations and equipment, traffic and crash investigations and an optional firearms familiarization course at the Muhlenberg Twp. shooting range. We have put together an informative, enlightening, thought provoking and fun CPA.
If you are interested in becoming a 2017 Citizen Police Academy cadet, please download the application and instructions. If you have further questions, please contact Sgt. Joel Marino at 610-685-0674.
