ADPS Citizen's Academy

Posted: Updated:
Aiken, SC -

If you've ever wondered what it's like to be a police officer or firefighter, now is your chance to go behind the scenes.

Aiken Public Safety is sponsoring a Citizen's Academy.

You won't be trained as a police officer or firefighter, but you will get hands on experience learning about everything from running radar to criminal investigation techniques.

Lt. Ben Harm, from ADPS, says folks will be surprised by what they see.

"It's everything from where ticket money goes to, most think jurisdiction, to seeing how we do speed estimates to seeing how we don and get off our bunker gear, even walking through safe smoke, opens eyes to level of skill to do job.

Those classes will be on Thursday nights.
