Citizen Police Academy scheduled

The West Seneca Police Department is continuing to accept registration for its 20th season of Citizen Police Academy. Only a few of the 20 spots remain available.

The 10-week course will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Wednesday nights, beginning Sept. 15 through Nov. 17.

The academy was founded in 2000 with the mission of providing the public with an informational look at the functions of the Police Department, increasing the partnership with the citizens it serves and identifying the needs of the community.

Topics include traffic enforcement (and a patrol car ride-along), the Detective Bureau, firearms (with a trip to the shooting range), narcotics, state and town law, and the Town Court process.

To sign up, contact Assistant Chief Daniel Denz at 674-2280.
