Sign Up Now for the Spring 2011 Citizens Public Safety Academy
“This academy was exciting, exhilarating, and encouraging to learn more and do more!”
-2008 Academy Graduate
Have you ever wondered what a day is like at the Grand Junction Police Department, Fire Department or 911 Communications Center? When you call 911, what happens on the other end of the phone? Is investigating a crime scene really like what you see on TV? What is it like to respond to a fire or medical emergency call? If you have these questions and others, the Grand Junction Citizens Public Safety Academy is for you!
The Grand Junction Police and Fire Departments are now accepting applications for the Spring 2011 Academy. From March 10 through June 11, this 14 week Academy will present aspects of police, fire, EMS (Emergency Medical Services) and 911 communications generally not known to the public. It will also provide insight on how public safety employees make decisions, perform their duties and serve you – our community.
Education is the key to developing strong community and citizen partnerships. An involved community working positively with public safety is an important part of the solution to keep our citizens safe.
Class size is limited and the spaces are filling quickly.
Applications can be downloaded at www.gjcity.org or can be picked up at the Police Department (625 Ute Ave.) or the Fire Department (450 South 6th St.)
For more information call Mike Page at 244-1413 or Terri Gird at 244-3575.
Applications are due by February 18, 2011
