Craig — The Craig Police Department is hosting its spring 2013 Citizens Police Academy beginning March 14.
The academy, which runs for 10 weeks, is not intended to certify participants for police duty, but to provide knowledge of the basic functions of the department.
Training takes place once per week from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays.
“We promote the academy as a way for the public to get a better understanding of the police department,” Sgt. John Forgay said. “It’s a great way for people to learn the various functions of everyone associated with CPD.”
Applications are available at the Moffat County Public Safety Center, 800 W. First St. The deadline to return applications is March 8.
Colorado law stipulates a background check be performed on all interested participants. Approved applicants will be notified of their acceptance to attend the academy.
