The nine week long program highlights the activities of the department and gives the public a chance to see what the department does on a daily basis.

The classes are taught by members of the department, which gives the class members a chance to meet officers in a positive environment. Topics covered will include Patrol, Investigations, K-9 Demonstrations, Firearms Training, and Crime Stoppers just to name a few. Each class participant may also attend a Saturday live fire exercise at the department’s firearms range.

The class culminates with a graduation ceremony and dinner, with certificates awarded to all that complete the course.

If anyone is interested in being a member of this 14th class, applications can be picked up at the Hopkinsville Police Department on West 1st Street. Applications can also be downloaded by going to the City of Hopkinsville website. Applications will be accepted at the Hopkinsville Police Department until Wednesday August 13, 2014, with the class set to begin Thursday August 21, 6 p.m. at Murray State University (Hopkinsville campus).

A brief back-ground check will be conducted on each applicant and each class member will be notified of his/her selection. The academy is limited to twenty students and all students must be 18 years of age or older. The class meets one day a week for 8 weeks at 6 p.m. and each class lasts approximately 2 hours.

For further information please contact Hopkinsville Police Officer John Bracey at (270) 887-8534 or (270) 890-1500.
