Spanish Community Police Academy starts soon

The Long Beach Police Department, along with the Chief’s Latino Advisory Group, is presenting a Spanish Language Community Police Academy to members of the Spanish-speaking community.
Participants will gain understanding of the LBPD as well as insight into the criminal justice system. Information on topics such as patrol operations, gang enforcement, juvenile operations, the police “911” communications center and other related fields will be provided by department experts.
The LBPD conducts community police academies on a regular basis, and this will be the second time the class will be taught and presented in Spanish. The goal of the police academy is to strengthen relationships and build partnerships between the Spanish-speaking community and the LBPD.
The Spanish Community Police Academy will meet every Thursday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 13 at 400 West Broadway in Long Beach. To attend the academy, applicants must live or work in the city of Long Beach, be at least 18 years of age, have no outstanding warrants, criminal cases or felony convictions, and must pass a live scan fingerprint background check.
