CALLOWAY COUNTY, KY (8/14/12) – The Murray Police Department is going to present the Citizens Police Academy. Applications for this program are now being accepted. This is an eight-week class that is offered free of charge to anyone age 21 or older who lives or works in the city of Murray.

The Citizens Police Academy is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn about the issues that face law enforcement efforts in Murray and Calloway County.
The goal of the Citizens Police Academy is not only to help local residents better understand police work in their community, but to develop stronger ties between our community and police agencies in an effort to better address crime issues.
Academy attendees are instructed on how the Police Department functions and the day to day operations of the different divisions within the department. The academy will include a trip to the firing range, a K9 demonstration, and a taser demonstration. Participants will learn about everything from 911 operational procedures to accident investigations to narcotics investigations. The classes are conducted by Murray Police Department officers.
