Speedway Police Citizens Academy – 2014 Graduation

On Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at Speedway High School, the Speedway Police Department held a graduation ceremony for its 5th Citizens Academy class.

The mission of Citizens Academy is to produce better informed citizens with a deeper understanding of the Speedway Police Department and the role law enforcement plays in the community. The class is an exciting and informative look at the Speedway Police Department. Speedway Police Department officers and staff teach classes on a variety of topics over 12 weeks, commencing with a graduation ceremony.

The newest graduates are now members of the Speedway Police Citizens Academy Alumni association, an active group which provides many opportunities to partner with and assist the Speedway Police Department with their community policing goals, including attendance at civic events, providing support of the Neighborhood Watch program, as well as continuing education classes and other interaction with SPD and the Speedway community.
