Citizen's Academy

The Sterling Police Department periodically hosts a Citizen's Police Academy. The 6 week academy will be an informative look at modern day policing practices within the Department and will cover the following topics:

  • Crime scene investigation
  • Department structure
  • How officers are hired
  • Officer equipment, duties, assignments and calls
  • Support services
  • Traffic and D.U.I. enforcement

This free program is offered to residents and is an example of community policing efforts by the Sterling Police Department. Space will be limited. Persons interested in applying to attend the Citizen's Police Academy should contact Community Service Officer Tekla Martin.
