      Citizen's Police Academy

    3. In order to enhance and develop citizen awareness and understanding of the police role in the community, the Bristol Tennessee Police Department has developed a Citizens Police Academy. This "new" concept in law enforcement is designed for citizens of different backgrounds and occupations.

    4. This program consist of (27) hours of police training with a majority of the instruction being "hands-on". Training areas covered include traffic stops, criminal investigation procedures, firearms and self defense instruction, accident investigation, narcotics and vice investigation, domestic violence and D.U.I. enforcement. In addition, students are required to ride for two (2) shifts on patrol with a certified officer.

    5. The objective in not to make the "graduates" of the course police officers, but better informed citizens with a greater general knowledge of out many functions. We also hope to foster enhanced community relations through these graduates and the people they touch in every day life.
