PEOPLE in South Warwickshire are being offered the chance to learn about and experience the day-to-day workings of their local police force, as part of a new Citizens’ Academy.

The programme will provide a unique insight into Warwickshire Police’s work to protect people from harm and improve the quality of life for residents.

Members of the public over the age of 18 can enrol in the ten-week Citizens’ Academy programme at Leamington Spa Justice Centre from Wednesday, September 23, 2015.

Police officers, police staff and supporting agencies/organisations will deliver presentations on key topics every Wednesday evening, from 6.30pm-8.30pm.

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.

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.
