Residents curious about the inner workings of the Surrey RCMP have the opportunity to apply to take part in the Citizen Police Academy.
The eight-week program – running Sept. 16 to Nov. 4 – will feature presentations and demonstrations on topics including drugs and major crime, forensics, mental health, addictions, traffic investigations, the court system, police-dog services and crime prevention.
The course takes place at the Surrey RCMP’s main detachment (14355 57 Ave.) on Wednesday nights from 7-9:30 p.m.
There are spaces available for 24 participants, who must be at least 18 years of age and a resident or business owner in Surrey, and the deadline to apply is July 31.
