Citizen Police Academy Class

The Montclair and Bloomfield Police Departments are offering a free 10-week Citizen Police Academy Class from January 24 – April 18, open to eligible residents.

The training courses will be instructed by certified law enforcement officers from the Montclair Police Department, Bloomfield Police Department, as well as officers from other agencies.  This program offers no police certification.  Instead, the goal is to provide a better understanding of modern police practices.  Participants will also gain an insight to the functions and responsibilities of police departments as well as criminal law and legal procedure.

Class size will be limited to 25 persons and space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Montclair and Bloomfield residents and employees will be given preference over non-residents.

A background check will be conducted on all applicants and access may be denied to those with a criminal arrest record.  Audio and video recording of any portion of the course is strictly prohibited without the express written consent of the Montclair and Bloomfield Police Departments.

Applicants for the Citizen Academy must meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Have no felony convictions
  • Have no misdemeanor convictions within the last three years

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
