|Citizens' Police Academy|
The Citizens' Police Academy is a Volunteer Program open to all adult citizens who wish to educate themselves in the operations of your Woodstock Police Service. The eight-week evening program is offered at no cost to the candidates.
The successful 10-12 candidates will spend 1 evening per week for 8 weeks with the Woodstock Police Service. Students will be exposed to each part of our Service - frontline patrol, training, the Forensic Identification Unit, the Drug Enforcement Unit, etc. Each section of our Service will have representatives explain in detail their responsibilities, and demonstrate the equipment used the performance of their duties. Students will also have an opportunity to use our Firearms Range, be "arrested" by our Police Service Dog and get a hands-on experience with most of our equipment. The highlight of the course is a ride-a-long with one of our frontline patrol officers for an evening where the candidate will have the opportunity to eyewitness the professional service we proudly provide for our citizens from a front row
