The South San Francisco Police department has announced the upcoming Citizen’s Police Academy will start on March 26. The 12 week academy will meet on Tuesday evenings for 2 1/2 hours starting at 6:30pm. The program is FREE to qualified folks who live or work in South City with a limit of 25 people per class. You must be 18 or older and not have any felony convictions.  This is a great opportunity to learn first hand  different aspects of police work including  SWAT Team and K-9 Team demonstrations as well as firearms training in our department’s shooting range.

South City resident Debbie Lallas had this to say, “I took it a few years ago. Fantastic experience. We learned a lot about how much the police do for our community. And it was fun to see what goes on behind the scenes. We got to drive a police car, shoot in the shooting range, meet the police dogs, go on a tour of the Redwood City Jail and go on a ride-along. My ride-along turned out to be quite exciting. We ended up in a high speed chase of someone with a stolen car and a gun! (Don’t worry-that’s definitely not the usual ride-along experience. Lol)”

Another South City resident Karen Johanson agreed, “I’d highly recommend this class! It was a great experience.” she explained. ” I did this with a group of coworkers a few years ago. I learned a lot of really useful information – a great identity theft session – and really came out with an even greater appreciation of the job our police officers do. ”

For more information or to register for the class contact Corporal Sean Curmi  (650) 829-3931 or by e-mail at Sean.Curmi@ssf.net  An application for the class can be found HERE and must be completed and returned to Corporal Curmi

    Seems a correction is in order. March 26 is a Wednesday, although it is stated that classes are on Tuesdays. Which is correct? Thanks!
