The Holly Springs Police Department will soon start another session of its Citizens Police Academy.
The six-week session, which is free, will start on Monday March 4 and classes will be held each Monday between 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Holly Springs Police Department.
The academy offers citizens a first-hand look at the responsibilities and operations of a police department by providing classroom instruction on areas such as the history of law enforcement; federal, state, and local laws; uniform patrol operations; investigations; use of force; and the use of firearms.
Residents will also have the chance to participate in a ride along with a Holly Springs police officer.
Class size is limited and applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. The academy is open to anyone who wishes to participate.
Applicants must be at least 19 years old and submit to a background check.
