Police to Give Inside Look of Operations in Upcoming Citizens Police Academy


Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – The community has a chance to get an inside, in-depth look of Mt. Juliet’s police operations in an upcoming Citizens Police Academy session. The Mt. Juliet Police Department is currently accepting applications for the academy session that will begin on April 15, 2015 and will continue every Wednesday night until June 24, 2015. Class sessions start at 6:30 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m.

Mt. Juliet’s popular Citizens Police Academy offers city residents an inside look at aspects of law enforcement most have never seen, in a series of free lectures, demonstrations, and discussions. This program is directed towards citizens who live or work in the Mt. Juliet community. The program’s goal is to increase the understanding between citizens and their police department. Citizens are not trained to be police officers. However, after completion of the citizens academy, participants are able to become a citizen volunteer within the department.

Applicants must live, work or volunteer in the City of Mt. Juliet, be 21 years of age or older, and have no felony or domestic violence convictions. The application can be found online at www.mjpd.org, and the last day to apply is Wednesday, April 8, 2015. There is no cost to participate. For more information regarding the Citizens Police Academy, Cpl. James Christensen can be reached at (615) 754-3907 or jchristensen@cityofmtjuliet.org.
