The DPS, Lubbock Police Department, and the Lubbock Sherrif’s office are now taking applications for the Citizen’s Academy. The next session will start on August 1st.

From the Texas Department of Public Safety:

“Participants in the academy will learn about the different services each agency offers. This year’s academy will include four weeks dedicated to each of the three agencies with some of the topics to include: patrol procedures, SWAT, the crime lab, aircraft operation, border operations, K-9 units, tactical driving, crash investigations, criminal investigations and civilian response to active shooters.

The Citizens Academy is designed to educate students about the many safety challenges Texans face every day and how law enforcement organizations function on a daily basis to protect and serve the state. The academy will be held at the offices of DPS, LSO and LPD. “

Several of our staff here at Townsquare Media have participated in the Citizen’s Academy in the past and have said they found the experience rewarding.
