The Bristol Township Civilian Police Academy, which was to start Today, Sept. 11, has been canceled due to lack of participants registering for the 28-hour course.
“We have done this in the past and there was a great turnout, but with the timing of it around the Holidays and with kids going back to school there wasn’t enough people registered,” said Officer Kimberly Caron.
The program was designed to be comprehensive and cover various topics of the department’s services each week including: general introduction and history of law enforcement, crime scene processing, fraud identity theft, and a ride-along program.
The program does intend to be offered again in the spring, with a limit of 18 participants for the classes.
“We shouldn’t have a problem filling it in the spring, and we do have the funding for the program,” said Caron.
In order to enroll the program, there are several requirements. You must be 21 years of age, a Bristol Township resident or business owner, a U.S. citizen, and be in good moral character with no misdemeanors or felony convictions.
