Milpitas Police Academy Springing into Gear


Want to know what it takes to be a cop? Want to know how a Police Department runs, and what police officers experience on the job?

You’re in luck, then: The Milpitas Police Department is soon launching a 2019 Citizen’s Police Academy. This 3-week course, which is available to community members for FREE, will educate people on the field of law enforcement.

When? May 6 to May 22, 2019 — every Monday and Wednesday from 6PM to 9:30PM.

We’re talking lectures, we’re talking staged scenarios, we’re talking hands-on exercises. Those who show up to participate will undergo training not unlike the real thing experienced by actual police officers. You’ll get to learn about Crime Scene Investigation (CSI), DUI Detection, Building Searches, Canines, Human Trafficking, and a philosophy called “Run, Hide, Fight” — among other pertinent law enforcement topics.

Space is limited, so if you want in, don’t waste time. You can give a holler to MPD’s Sergeant Bryan Hinkley to learn more: (408) 586-2527 / bhinkley@ci.milpitas.ca.gov.
