On May 17, 2017 22 community members were presented with certificates in recognition of their graduation from the MHPS Citizen's Police Academy. The CPA is intended to provide community members with the opportunity to learn more about the MHPS, our staff and programs, as well as gain an increased awareness of current policing issues and community safety concerns. Through a series of lectures, hands on learning and practical demonstrations provided over 10 consecutive weeks participants were provided insight into the diverse nature of policing with topics including; uniformed operations, specialty teams, major crimes investigation, community safety initiatives and emerging crime trends. The MHPS would like to thank all of the graduates for their interest and commitment to learning about the MHPS. Congratulations Class of 2017!
