WPB to Offer Citizen Police and Fire Academy

(Friday, December 19, 2008)  West Palm Beach residents hoping to learn more about public safety and get involved in their City government have an exciting new opportunity.

The West Palm Beach Police and Fire Rescue Departments will be offering a 13-week Citizen Police and Fire Academy to the public.  Space is limited, so sign up today!  The classes will be on Monday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. starting January 26, 2009.  The class will meet at the Police Department on Banyan Boulevard.

The academy will immerse students in every area of both the Police and Fire Rescue departments.  Activities will include a four-hour police ride along, fire station tours and demonstrations of the latest public safety technology.  The course provides lessons in police and fire work that the average citizen rarely has an opportunity to experience.
