The Mauldin Police Department will host their second Citizen’s Police Academy beginning March 10th, 2014 and a graduation ceremony is planned for May 19th, 2014. The Citizen’s Police Academy is a 11 week course that will meet every Monday evening from 6pm-9pm at the Mauldin Police Department. The class is free of charge. Participants must be 21 years of age or older and reside in Greenville County. A criminal history check will be conducted.
The goal of the academy is to inform participants on how a police department functions and operates. Instruction will consist of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on-training focusing on various topics such as Crime Scene Investigation, Emergency Vehicle Operations, Gangs, Drugs and Traffic Enforcement. Academy graduates will experience an “inside look” at policing.
