Citizens Learning about Police Work

July 25, 2019

The first Butler Township Police Citizen’s Academy is underway, having started September 11 and running through October 23.

During the seven week, participants are learning abut the inner workings of the police department. Topics include criminal investigation, traffic and accident investigation, evidence collection and response to resistance.  Students will also ride along with officers. Since this was our first academy, we wanted to limit the number of students to ensure we were able to meet each participant’s needs, “said Police Chief John Porter. “We hope to grow the enrollment in future classes, giving more residents the opportunity to become involved.”

The next academy will be held next spring and is open to all Butler township residents.  Attendance is free however an application form is required and can be found by clicking on the attached link: Citizen Police Academy Application.   Click here to view the Citizen’s Police Academy Video
