Roseville citizen’s academy offers insight to police operations

Adults who live or work in Roseville and are interested in learning about local law enforcement can sign up for the Roseville Police Department’s Citizen’s Police Awareness Academy.

The academy is intended to give members of the community a behind-the-scenes look at police operations, according to a Police Department news release. The program includes interactive and classroom sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to role play with officers in realistic patrol situations and take a driving lesson on the department’s emergency vehicle operations course. They’ll also be introduced to concepts of community-oriented policing and problem solving, learn about volunteer opportunities and meet representatives of units in the department.
