With police officers the focus of increased public awareness, police departments everywhere ought to consider the value in sponsoring Citizens’ Police Academies like this one in Tustin (Orange County) Ca. “At a time when national headlines continually criticize the police and create mistrust of law enforcement,” says PoliceOne.com, “developing a citizens relations program through a citizens academy can pay significant dividends.”

The academy in Tustin meets once a week for three hours each evening in the training room of the police department there. Twenty-four citizens are accepted to attend, after background checks and completion of a form asking why they want to attend. This seems a worthy relational effort.
