Local residents educated by police force

EDMOND — A group of Edmond citizens have witnessed a SWAT demonstration and learned about digital evidence and task forces related to terrorism and drugs.

Twenty-two residents are participating in the Edmond Police Department’s 34th Civilian Police Academy class, said CPA coordinator Police Officer Randy Payne.

The Citizens Police Academy is a free 13-week series of classes designed to enhance the EPD’s relationships with members of the community by familiarizing participants with the agency, its policies and its practices.

Future topics include digital evidence, accident investigation, the city court system, crisis negotiations, school resource officers, gangs, crime scene investigations, the bomb disposal unit, shooting decisions/use of force and less lethal options, sexual crime investigations and a K9 presentation.

The class ends on Nov. 19. Participants become members of the Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, which supports the EPD in a number of ways.

Payne said he would love to have local businesses to send a representative to the next class. They are held Tuesday evenings in the Downtown Community Center, 28 E. Main St.

“They will learn about our police procedures responding to different types of calls to their business,” Payne said.

Requirements include a minimum age of 18 years, being an Edmond resident or working in city limits and having no criminal record. Payne said the class this time of year — the end of summer — is traditionally less attended than others.

The 35th Citizens Police Academy will begin in February.

FOR MORE information regarding our Citizen’s Police Academy, please call 359-4437 or fax your application to 341-6845, attention Officer Payne.
