Missouri City invites residents to join the Annual Citizens’ Police & Fire Academy for 2019. The program offers a “behind-the-scenes” view of the dangers firefighters and police officers face on the job.
This free, eight-week program is for individuals who are at least 18 years of age and either live or work in Missouri City. Classes begins on April 3 and will be held every Wednesday from 6:20 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Missouri City Public Safety Headquarters, 3849 Cartwright Rd.
The 2019 class is limited to 24 candidates and interested individuals may apply online on the City website, via this link: http://bit.ly/2UqDPDU.
The Academy is a perfect opportunity for Missouri City citizens to learn more about the daily operations of the Police Department and Fire & Rescue Services. The program reviews the different types of crimes officers are confronted with on a daily basis and also provide an overview of the training police officers and firefighters undergo.
Members will receive instruction in traffic laws, criminal law and crime scene investigations; learn about the principles of CPR; experience firearms training in a simulator; view a staged SWAT operation, a live fire demonstration; a motor vehicle extrication using the “Jaws of Life” and more.
After completing the Academy, members will be eligible to join the Missouri City Police & Fire Auxiliary and/or the Citizens’ Response Team, both of which provide support to local police officers and firefighters. Participants of the program will also enjoy a special graduation ceremony on May 31.
