Little Compton, R.I. -

The Police Department will conduct a 10-week citizens' police academy, beginning Sept. 22, to include in-class and hands-on law enforcement training.
Classes will be held weekly from 7 to 9 p.m. Some classes may run longer.
The academy's goal is to give residents "an opportunity to learn more about their local Police Department and provide a better understanding of the operations, problems and demands of the police," said Chief Sidney M. Wordell.
The program is also designed to provide the department with "valuable input and feedback from the citizens about the public's needs and concerns," he said. "The information shared and knowledge gained benefits both the police and community."
Police work covered will include patrol operations, criminal law and procedures, crime scene investigations, motor vehicle stops, community oriented policing, Drug Abuse Resistance Education program, firearms training and dispatch/radio procedure.
Admission is free. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and pass a criminal background check. Class enrollment is limited to 20 students. Little Compton residents have preference. Participants must attend at least seven of the 10 classes to graduate.
Applications are available at the police station and are now being accepted. For more information, contact officers Chris Branco or Suzanne Cressman.
