QPD’s Next Citizen’s Police Academy Starts September 10

It was one of the most interesting classes I have ever taken and it is available for the public again. I am referring to the Quincy Police Department’s 2015 Fall Citizen’s Police Academy. 

I graduated from the class in May of 2003. It was the quickest 10 weeks of my life and each week when the class would end I didn’t want to leave. The class at Quincy City Hall still lasts 10 weeks and is held every Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. beginning September 10. There is no charge to attend the class.

Participants will learn about all aspects of the Quincy Police Department and will participate in hands on activities as well. During the course, you will learn about the Street Crimes Unit, DUI Practical stops, Emergency Response Team, Crime Scene Investigations and Drug enforcement just to name a few.

All enrolled will get the opportunity to spend an optional day at PASA Park in Barry, Illinois and use the firing range there as well. Plus, you will have the opportunity at the conclusion of the class to schedule a ride along with a Quincy Police Department officer.

There are restrictions as to who may enroll in the class. You must live, work or own property in Quincy and you must be at least 18 years of age. To apply, contact the Q.P.D. Pro-Act Unit at 228-4485.
