Across the country, police-citizen relations are in the news.
Westport cops have a great reputation. But they want to do even more to help folks understand the reality of their lives.
A Citizens’ Police Academy begins September 8. Up to 24 Westporters will take law enforcement classes from local police officers. They’ll also participate in ride-alongs, and earn CPR/AED certification.
Classes meet every Thursday (7-9:30 p.m.), for 9 weeks.
I’ve done a ride-along. It was a fascinating experience.
The course seems educational, intriguing, and very valuable. It’s open to all Westport residents 21 and older. For more information, including an application, call Jillian Cabana: 203-341-6009.
