EDISON, NJ – The Edison Police Department will host a Civilian Police Academy starting Feb. 3, 2015, from 7:30-9:30 p.m., and will run for seven Tuesday evenings through March.

The academy, to be held at the Edison Municipal Complex, 100 Municipal Blvd, is open to all Edison residents, 18 or older, who register before Jan. 23, 2015. The class size will be limited to the first 40 residents to register and there is no cost for the program.

“I extremely pleased to bring back our Civilian Police Academy,” Police Chief Thomas Bryan said. “This is a program that has allowed us to reach out to the community and better inform our residents about what the Edison Police Department does every day. It also gives our participants a small taste of what it would be like to be a police officer.”
