Major Fraud, forensics and homicide are just some of the policing areas that are part of the curriculum at the Hamilton Police Service’s popular Citizen’s Police College starting Oct. 26, 6:30 p. m., at Mohawk College.
Instead of offering three different sessions at the various police stations, Hamilton Police is offering one super session. It takes place at Mohawk College, Fennell Campus, which is easily accessible, has on-site parking and is on a bus route.
One of the first police services in Ontario to offer this type of program, Hamilton Police Service has conducted a Citizen’s Police College and a Seniors Police College since 1997. Thousands of residents have participated.
Citizen’s Police College is for people who are interested in learning about policing issues. Enrolment is free, but class size for the well-liked program is limited to 100. The program is offered to individuals who live, work or are engaged in full-time studies within the City of Hamilton. Availability is on a first-come first-serve basis.
The six-week program is held once a week on six consecutive Tuesday evenings for approximately two hours. Citizen’s Police College will also cover many other topics such as Crime Stoppers, Victim Services and the BEAR Unit.
