Warwickshire Police is offering people in South Warwickshire an exciting opportunity to learn about and experience the day-to-day workings of their local police force as part of the Citizens’ Academy.
This programme provides local people over the age of 16 with a unique insight into Warwickshire Police’s work to protect people from harm and improve residents’ quality of life.
The course will cover a range of policing functions/roles including crime prevention and detection, recording crimes and incidents, road safety, forensic investigation, police use of firearms, internet safety, and the role of Safer Neighbourhood Teams as well as other key departments. There may be opportunities for students to experience ride-alongs with police officers and to visit a police station.
Participants will also be encouraged to request subjects of specific interest to them to ensure they get the best possible benefit from the time they invest.
You can watch a video on YouTube which will show you a little more of what to expect https://youtu.be/iwCSV2UF-N4
