Citizens Police Academy Graduation


The Martin Police Department recently graduated the 27th Session of the Citizen’s Police Academy. On Thursday May 12th, 2016 members of the Martin community received their diplomas in a special ceremony held at the Martin Recreational Complex.
The Citizen’s Police Academy is a chance for citizens that live or work in Martin to get a first-hand view of the operations of the Martin Police Department. After graduating, citizens have a better understanding of what police officers face every day. The class met one night a week for ten weeks. Topics of instruction included use of force, undercover drug operations, crime scene investigation, DUI enforcement, criminal law, firearms, and other areas.
Also during the ten week class the participants were required to ride with a Martin Police officer at least two times during the course of the class. Over 500 citizens have graduated from the Citizen’s Police Academy program since its inception in 1993.
