LIVINGSTON, NJ — A 10-week program designed to give participants an understanding of the inner workings of the Livingston Police Department and a working knowledge of what law enforcement entails is being offered to all community members at no cost this fall.

According to the department’s Community Policing Unit, the goal of the Citizens Police Academy is to strengthen police-community rapport through an educational process, increase understanding of police practices and procedures and dispose of misconceptions. In turn, it is hoped that the members of the police department will become more aware of the concerns and questions of the community it serves.

Participants must be at least 21 years old and reside or work in the Township of Livingston. Classes will be held every Thursday from Sept. 6 to Nov. 8 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
