Police Chief Terrence B. Sheridan presented the graduates their certificates. These men and women completed a 15-week program. The graduates learned about the various units and the various aspects of law enforcement. Officers from specialized units such as K-9, Marine, Aviation and Tactical Operations spoke to the participants and described their duties.

The graduates also learned about the precincts, narcotics identification and investigation. They sat in on lectures covering media relations, criminal investigations, as well as residential and Homeland Security. They went to the firing range, where they learned about the use of force and the department's policy on the use of firearms.

The main focus of the Citizens' Academy is to foster greater communication and relationships between the department, the community, and businesses, as well as to promote a better understanding of law enforcement.
