Citizen Police Academy Announced

The Matthews Police Department is pleased to announce the Citizen Police Academy for Spring 2010. The Academy is an eight week program that is designed to build a stronger relationship between the community and the police department through education. It is open to residents and individuals who work in the town of Matthews. Information provided throughout the program is intended to help with misunderstandings about law enforcement and create an awareness of challenges and limitations that face police. The Citizen Police Academy is not designed to train attendees about how to be police officers. The intent is to create a hands-on interactive program that will assist with strengthening the partnership between the Matthews Police Department and the community it serves.
Participants will meet once a week on consecutive Thursday evenings beginning on March 18th and ending on May 6, 2010. The academy will be held at the Matthews Police Department located at 1201 Crews Rd. Classes begin at 6:00 PM and are scheduled to conclude at 8:00 PM. Attendees will also have the option to arrange a 4 hour ride-a-long with an on-duty patrol officer.
This program is offered at no cost to the participants. Applications are currently being accepted and are available on our web-site Matthews Police, by e-mailing a request to communitysafety@matthewspolice.org, or visiting the police department in person Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. An application is attached to this e-mail in pdf format; however, it cannot be saved completed on your computer. Applications must be printed and delivered, mailed or faxed to the Matthews Police Department. Space is limited and the deadline for accepting applications is Wednesday March 10th at 5:00 PM.
