Residents Wanted For Holly Springs Citizens Police Academy

The six-week long program starts March and will teach residents the inner workings of the Holly Springs Police Department.

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.
