Citizens Police Academy

There are still slots available for the upcoming cycle of the Bethlehem Citizens Police Academy.

Have you ever wondered how the Police perform their different duties? Have you ever wanted to talk to a Police Officer about his or her experience as a Law Enforcement Officer in your community? How do you become a Police Officer and what does it take? What training does an Officer have to go through? Have questions on the size of the Department or how many calls for service or arrests? If you are interested in the answers to these questions and would like to know more, you should consider attending the next City of Bethlehem Citizen’s Police Academy.

Officers teach about the Hiring Process, Juvenile Law, Use of Force Issues, Officer Safety, Patrol Procedures, Criminal Investigations, Traffic Collision Investigations, Vice Investigations, Crime Scene Investigations, Firearms and Defensive Tactics Training, Community Policing, K-9 and Mounted Operations, and much more. The K-9 Unit, Mounted Unit and Bicycle Unit will give demonstrations, all to enhance the relationship between the Police Department and the community.

Contact Sgt. Blake Kuntz #377 at bkuntz@bethlehem-pa.gov or 610-419-9187 for more information and an application.

Classes are held Wednesday evenings, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., for seven weeks. The next session of the Citizens Police Academy will begin Sept. 22.
