The Times


The Noblesville Police Department is currently accepting applications for the next Citizens Police Academy. The academy is an 11-week course, free of charge, designed to provide community members with an opportunity to become better acquainted with our professional staff and to learn about police procedures.

The Academy will familiarize citizens with the operations of the police department. This includes classes on patrol procedures, criminal law, narcotics, search and seizure, tactical operations, investigations, juvenile law, firearms demonstration, emergency vehicle operations, use of force issues and police canine demonstration. Participants will also have the option to ride with a patrol officer and witness the street-activity our officers encounter on a day-to-day basis.

The objective of the Citizens Police Academy is not to create quasi-cops, but to produce informed citizens.

The academy is intended to open lines of communication between the community and the police department. By allowing citizens a firsthand look at the police department and how its operations are handled, citizens take away a better understanding of the police role in the community.

Additionally, citizens bring a wealth of knowledge about their community and particularly, the problems in their neighborhood. In this way, police are able to learn and better understand the concerns of the citizens.

Eligible candidates must:



• Be at least 16 years of age

• Have no felony convictions and no misdemeanor convictions within the last (3) years

• Pass a background check

• Reside or be employed in Noblesville

The next academy session will begin on Sept. 13 and will conclude on Nov. 22, with a graduation ceremony. Classes are scheduled 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Wednesday.

Applications are available online at www.cityofnoblesville.org/police or at the Noblesville Police Department. Class size is limited.

For further information please contact Lieutenant Bruce Barnes at (317) 776-6340, ext. 1243 or at bbarnes@noblesville.in.us
