LANSING, MI (WLNS) – If you have ever wanted to learn more about the day to day work of police officers, here is your chance.
The Lansing Police Department is bringing back a special program aimed at educating the public about police work.
This afternoon Lansing Police Chief Mike Yankowski will announce the return of their Citizens Police Academy. You must be 18 or older to sign up.
The program is a 33 hour long course designed to educate the public on police practices. Each week attendees will sit for three hours watching demonstrations, learning basic skills and abilities necessary for police work and going over the ins and outs of criminal investigations and crime prevention. The department hopes that the instruction and information provided by the Citizens Academy will clear up misconceptions about the police and better the relationship between officers and the community.
