Citizen’s Police Academy Coordinator
The purpose of the Summerville Police Department’s Citizens Police Academy is to provide citizens who live or work in the Town of Summerville a deeper understanding of the job knowledge, skills, and abilities required of the modern day law enforcement officer. This will be accomplished through the use of department instructors and employees with specific or specialized knowledge and experience, through the use of video and audio presentations, as well as practical “hands on” exercises.
Participants will utilize the information presented to gain a new and hopefully positive insight into the difficult challenges of today’s law enforcement personnel. By observing different areas of the department, the participants will be given the opportunity to view an officer or officers during the day to day activities of “protecting and serving” this community.
Our program is nationally recognized by the National Citizens Police Academy Association, our coordinator is Corporal Jason Dandridge.
