Attn aspiring engaged citizens: Hamilton Police offering "Citizen's Police College"

The Hamilton Police issued an interesting news release announcing the date of this year’s “Citizen’s Police College”

I wish I could attend – my work schedule conflicts – and encourage you to register if interested.

The course offers the opportunity for citizens to learn about the Police Service and gain a greater understanding of police work. The course goal is to inform citizen’s interested in better understanding the Police Service.

The course covers topics including:

  • Forensics;
  • Homicide;
  • Drugs and Vice;
  • Crime Stoppers;
  • Victim Services;
  • BEAR (Break, Enter, and Robbery) Unit;
  • Major Fraud; and
  • the Mounted Patrol Unit

The course is at Mohawk College and free for those who live, work, or study in Hamilton. (Citizens, those employed or full-time students in the city.)

Registration is now open. To register, email or call Lindsay Sindrey at (905) 546-4900.

I highly recommend this course for any inspiring journalist, engaged citizen, or blogger in the local area.
