The Hastings Police Department Citizen Academy is a six-week long program that will give you the unique opportunity to step behind the scenes and learn about the role of a police officer in our community. In this informative and hands-on learning environment, academy participants will be instructed by over a dozen different officers, investigators, and supervisors on such issues as patrol operations, traffic stops, DUI, use of force, criminal investigations, K-9, narcotics, SWAT, and more. It is our hope that this academy will create a greater understanding of police work and how the Hastings Police Department serves its community.

The Citizen Academy is open to men and women over the age of 18 who either live or work in the City of Hastings. The class size will be limited to twenty participants, and applicants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. The Hastings Police Department will conduct a background check on applicants prior to acceptance.

The program runs on Thursday evenings

from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

between October 13th and November 17th 2016.
