Join Nags Head’s Citizen’s Police Academy to experience police work firsthand!
The Town of Nags Head’s Police Department is accepting applications for its 2021 Citizens Police Academy (Session #4), which begins September 28, 2021.
The program is designed to increase transparency and enhance understanding between the community and the police. It will also provide an excellent opportunity for participants to gain a better understanding of the philosophy, policies and guiding principles of local law enforcement, and the ethical conduct requirements that govern police services in our community.
Participants will meet each Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m. for eight weeks beginning September 28. Citizens who enroll will learn about a variety of topics including patrol procedures, criminal investigation procedures, and community policing, to name a few of the topics. In addition, will have the ability to ride with officers, and watch K-9 demonstrations.
The application period will close at 5 p.m. on September 17, 2021. Enrollment is limited to citizens who are at least 21 years of age. Priority will be given to Nags Head residents and business owners; however, everyone is welcome to apply and participate. There is no fee for the program, though the Department requests that applicants be committed to participating for its duration.
Applications can be picked up at the Police Department on the first floor of Nags Head’s town Hall at 5401 South Croatan Highway.
