Congratulations to 23 members of the Police Citizens Academy, who graduated from the class in November. Members spent eight weeks learning about different aspects of the police department. From learning about firearms and defensive tactics, to understanding how to process a crime scene and participating in a ride-along with a patrol officer, students were able to get a “behind-the-scenes” view of the police department.
If you are interested in public safety, watch for exciting new programming from the Coon Rapids Police Department in 2019 including the Community Police Academy and Home Alone Safety for Kids. More details will be revealed in the 2019 spring/summer Coon Rapids Parks and Recreation book, as well as on the City website and the police department Facebook page.
Watch for more information to come on these NEW programs!
