2020 Citizen Police Academy

We are pleased to announce the return of the Wilmington Police Department Citizen Police Academy. Made possible through a generous grant from the Cummings Foundation, the Citizen Police Academy gives residents an opportunity to interact with Wilmington Police Officers and learn about policing in society today. Topics expected to be covered are an Introduction to the Wilmington PD, the Massachusetts Court System, Citizen CPR, Traffic Safety, Working as A Patrol Officer, Criminal Investigations, Drugs, and Police Officer Use of Force.

Graduates from the Citizen Police Academy will not only have a better understanding of the operations of the Wilmington Police Department, but they will also have a greater understanding of the daily tasks and challenges that Wilmington Police Officers face each day.

In order to attend the program, participants must live or work in the Town of Wilmington, be at least 21 years old, and have no serious criminal history. The class will be limited to 20 participants.

The program will be held from 6-9 pm on March 16, 19, 23, 26, 30 and April 2 & 6. Participants are expected to commit to the full class schedule.
