Radcliff Police Department is seeking applications for its first citizens police academy of the year.
Capt. Ralph Craig said class dates have not officially been set, but he added they typically begin in April and continue over a six- to eight-week period. In the past, he said classes meet weekly from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Monday.
Similar to programs offered by Kentucky State Police Post 4 and Elizabethtown Police Department, the class is designed to educate residents on how the police department operates. Topics covered include criminal investigations, Kentucky criminal law and ride-alongs with officers.
Radcliff offers its citizens police academy in the spring and fall, Craig said. The department typically accepts 15 per class.
Applications can be picked up at Radcliff City Hall or the police department, both of which are located along Freedoms Way off West Lincoln Trail Boulevard.
To be eligible, Craig said participants must be 18 years or older, possess a valid Kentucky driver’s license and sign a release allowing the department to conduct a background check.
People who have questions about applications or the academy can contact Capt. Ralph Craig at (270) 351-4479.
Sarah Bennett can be reached at (270) 505-1750 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
