Would you like to get more involved in your community? Or perhaps you’d just like to learn more about the wonderful community in which you live? Here is an opportunity for you to do both!
Police Chief Cynthia Renaud and Fire Chief Ron Phillips invite you to attend the annual City of Folsom Citizen’s Academy, which is both informative and fun.
The Citizen’s Academy is an educational program designed to create a greater understanding and trust between public safety agencies and the residents of Folsom. The Citizen's Academy is also a required training program for the CAPS (Citizens Assisting Public Safety) Volunteer Program. Guest agencies participate in the program to provide information on their services.
The Folsom Police Department covers topics such as Use of Force, CSI, Identity theft, 9-1-1 reporting, SWAT, Narcotics, Domestic Violence, Hostage Negotiations, and K-9 and Mounted Demonstrations. The Folsom Fire Department teaches classes on EMS and Disaster Preparedness. Topics such as Code Enforcement, Parks and Recreation, and Water Management are taught by other City agencies.
The Citizen’s Academy is held annually, so take advantage of this opportunity! The academy is open only to Folsom area residents, 21 years and older. Classes begin March 12, 2014, and are held for 11 consecutive weeks on Wednesday evenings at 6:00PM. Applications are required and class size is limited.
****** Beginning January 17th, 2014, applications will be available at the Folsom Police Department, 46 Natoma Street. You must apply in person. The final filing date is Friday, February 21, 2014. For further information, please call the CAPS desk at 916.351.3409.
