The Knightdale Police Department is continuing a program designed to give its citizens and area business owners a chance to develop a better understanding of the services provided by the agency. Our Citizens Police Academy is a collaborative effort between local residents, business owners and police officers that will help identify problems, generate community-oriented solutions, and build the kind of trust critical to creating a safe and pleasant community.

Classes for this free 8-week academy will be held every Monday evening from 6pm until 8:30pm in the Training Room of the Public Safety Building, located at 979 Steeple Square Ct in Knightdale NC. Classes will begin February 29, 2016, and meet every Monday until April 25, 2016, with the exception of the Spring Break week.

Preference will be given to residents of Knightdale, local business owners and civic group members, but all Eastern Wake community members are encouraged to apply. Participants must have no criminal history of felonies or serious misdemeanors.
