The Yuma Police Department is now accepting applications for its third
Hispanic Citizens' Police Academy. The academy is designed to educate Yuma-area
residents about the daily operations at YPD, and will be conducted in Spanish.
The academy, which is eight weeks long, will give participants an opportunity to
meet several police officers who will provide insight into various topics
relating to police work.
The academy will start on Sept. 3 and will conclude with a graduation ceremony on Oct. 22. Classes are held every Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m. There is no fee for attending the academy, although participants will be required to attend at least five sessions and participate in all of the "hands-on" training exercises to successfully complete the course.
Applications for the academy can be picked up at the YPD records window, 1500 S. 1st Ave. A completed application must be submitted by Aug. 19 in order for the applicant to be considered.
