The Muhlenberg Township Police Department is again
teaming up with the Bern Township Police Department, the Northern Berks
Regional Police Department and the Laureldale Police Department to again offer
the Citizens Police Academy to our residents. Although not a police academy to become a police officer, the Citizens
Police Academy (CPA) will offer our residents an inside look of the workings of
our police departments and the officer’s duties and responsibilities. CPA Attendees will learn how and why police
officers do the jobs they do.
Topics to be discussed include: Police structure,
police shootings and use of force, legal issues and the law, crime scene
investigations, patrol operations and equipment, traffic and crash
investigations and an optional firearms familiarization course at the
Muhlenberg Twp. shooting range. We have
put together an informative, enlightening, thought provoking and fun CPA.
If you are interested in becoming a 2018 Citizen
Police Academy cadet, please download the application and instructions. Applications will be accepted on a first
come, first serve basis and will be accepted starting December 11, 2017 thru
February 2, 2018. If you have further
questions, please contact Sgt. Joel Marino at 610-685-0674.
