Ten Milton residents will be riding in police cars soon – in the front seat, not the back.
The residents are participating in Milton’s second Citizen Police Academy in which they receive an inside look at various police procedures, policies and law. The six-week class, which started Wednesday, includes criminal investigations, criminal law, police K-9 units, traffic law, and 911 operations.
The idea behind the academy is that the distance between the police and the people they serve is lessened as more people learn about law enforcement.
The next series of classes will be available in the fall.
