Bangor police launch academy for citizens

The Associated Press

BANGOR — The Bangor Police Department is launching a Citizens' Police Academy that will give people an inside look and working knowledge of the department.

The department says the program consists of eight 2½-hour classes covering topics such as police patrol, criminal investigations, K-9 units, the bomb squad, crime scene investigations and drunken-driving enforcement.

The program is free and begins March 13.

Police say the academy is informative, but doesn't train participants to be police officers.
