Applicants Currently Being Accepted for Police Academy Program

The Marshfield Police Department has revamped its citizens’ police academy program. They will be holding classes on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for six (6) consecutive weeks, starting in April. Class size is limited to 15 adults and there is no cost to attend.

The goals of the citizens’ police academy are:

  • To provide citizens a working knowledge of law enforcement operations, including support staff.
  • To strengthen law enforcement/community relations.
  • To obtain valued feedback from the community through citizen participation.
  • To increase citizen knowledge about police functions.
  • To enhance employee’s instructor training skills.

The above objectives are met with the use of hands-on interactive experiences in areas such as crime scene investigations; SWAT tactics; utilization of police department firearms at the police range; and observe firsthand how the K-9 unit performs its duties.

If interested in participating, please call Peggy at 384-0800 between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
