August 11, 2014
TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Truckee Police Department next month will host a Citizen Police Academy, which will share ways to protect residents and their property against crimes such as identity theft and burglary, as well as being prepared for emergencies in the area.
The free, eight-week academy will provide community members with an inside look at the TPD, via an overview of the department's functions and operational procedures, officials said in a statement.
The first class begins Thursday, Sept. 11, and will meet from 6-8:30 p.m. for eight consecutive weeks. Residents interested in the academy must be at least 16 years of age, have no prior felony or serious misdemeanor convictions, and live in the town of Truckee. Parent/guardian approval is needed if under 18 years of age.
To apply for the academy, pick up a brochure at the TPD front desk at 10183 Truckee Airport Road, or call Community Service Officer Caitlin Thomas at 530-550-2323. Space is limited. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Sept. 2.
