The Brea Police Department has started its 16th Citizen Academy. The Citizen Academy is a one evening per week, twelve-week program designed to give participants an up close look at law enforcement. Included in the program curriculum are classes in criminal law, patrol tactics, firearms, drunk driving enforcement, crime scene investigation, K9, SWAT, and other important aspects of a police officer’s duties. Classes are instructed by Brea police officers and civilian personnel who are experts in their particular discipline.
Citizen Academy also provides a great opportunity to get to know the women and men of the Brea Police Department, as well as the chance to meet other members of the Brea community. Please contact Detective Shawn Neel at (714) 990-7637 or e-mail for more information.
