Wake Forest Police Citizens’ Academy to be offered in 2019

The Wake Forest University Police Department has scheduled a citizens’ academy for early 2019.

In recent years, the police department has scheduled the citizens’ academies to help University community members gain insight into the daily functions and responsibilities of the department and its personnel.  The goal, overall, of the academy is to improve police and community interaction.  Ideally, graduates will be able to share their new knowledge with others in the community, thereby helping others become more familiar with University Police.

The academy will present lunch and learn weekly sessions on eight occasions, starting Jan. 31.  Graduation will be April 3.  Those who attend five sessions receive a diploma in recognition of their attendance.  Lunch for the sessions will be provided to attendees.

All sessions will be held at the University Police Department in Alumni Hall.

Topics to be covered include, in part, use of force/firearms safety, community oriented policing, event security, the University’s communications 911 center, and more.

Registration is required through the Professional Development Center.
