Antioch Police Announce Citizens Law Enforcement Academy


On Tuesday, the Antioch Police Department announced it will host its 3rd Citizens Law Enforcement Academy. Classes begin October 4, 2017.

The Academy provides a unique opportunity for the participants to meet the officers and employees that protect and serve our community. The intent of the Citizens Law Enforcement Academy is to educate the community on the duties, training, investigation techniques and situations police officers and other members of the

Police Department may encounter. Participants of the academy will be given the opportunity to experience some of the activities Law Enforcement Officers and department personnel perform as part of their duties.
