Applications are now being accepted to the 19th Annual Monmouth County Citizen Police Academy, Sheriff Shaun Golden announced this morning.
A prerequisite for participating in VISCOMP (Volunteers in Sheriff’s Community Programs), the course is designed to foster and promote an understanding by citizens in Monmouth County of the services offered and challenges facing the law enforcement agencies in the county. It is envisioned that graduates of the Citizen Police Academy will gain awareness and appreciation of the services provided by these agencies and will become “goodwill ambassadors” for the law enforcement and public safety community.
The course consists of six sessions on consecutive Tuesday evenings, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, starting on September 22 and concluding with graduation on October 27th. The 12-hour block of instruction designed to give attendees an overview of law enforcement services in Monmouth County and features presentations by municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, Shaun Golden | Tags: Citizen Police Academy, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, Shaun Golden, Sheriff Shaun Golden | No Comments »
