The Springfield Police Department is offering another chance for the public to see how it operates and to learn about various aspects of law enforcement. Applications are being taken for the next Citizens Police Academy, which starts September 6. The ten-week long program, meets three hours every Thursday night.
The course covers a lot of topics, according to Springfield Police Department spokesperson Lisa Cox.
"They really get the full scope of what our department does--each specific unit how it operates, why we do the things we do," Cox said.
