The NPD Citizen’s Police Academy offers residents a “behind the scenes” look at police operations. You will get to know our command staff and officers, gain an appreciation for the challenging issues facing police today, while having the opportunity to present your own concerns and questions regarding the direction of public safety in your Town. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcements when the application period is open.
