The Auburn Police Department is accepting applications for its Citizens' Awareness Academy.
Twenty-five openings are available for the 11-week program that starts Feb. 24. Participants can learn about municipal policing procedures used in patrol, investigations, crime prevention, Neighborhood Watch, vehicle operations, arrests, emergency and inter-agency communications. An optional day at the shooting range also is planned, according to a Police Department news release.
Applications will be accepted until Feb. 23, a day before the program starts. If the class is filled, applicants may be placed on a waiting list for the next session.
The academy will meet from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays through May 4 in the Rose Room at City Hall, 1225 Lincoln Way, Auburn.
