The academy, which runs for 10 weeks from 6-9 p.m. Wednesdays, is offered to Danville residents and employees who want to learn more about their Police Department.
The academy is not intended to give students marketable police job skills but rather to create a better understanding of the police's relationship to the community in crime prevention and detection. Students will have the option to apply for the department's Volunteers in Policing program upon completion of the academy.
Sessions are limited to 20 participants. Applicants must be at least 18 years old with no misdemeanor convictions within one year of applications and no felony convictions. A minimum background check will be conducted.
