MSP to host first-ever citizen's academy

Aug 4, 2016

The Michigan State Police Lansing post offers its first-ever citizen’s police academy to interested residents and members of the community.

The academy will be held at the MSP’s First District headquarters and begins in September.

Sessions will be held two evenings a week for four weeks.

The department says topics include discussions on patrol and dispatch, the legal system and criminal investigation procedures and the use of force.

Personal safety, first aid and drug awareness are also among session subjects.

The state post is the first to offer the training, which is free to the public. 

Spots are limited and you can learn more by contacting the district.
