The Newtown Police Department will be hosting its 25th Citizen Police Academy beginning March 22nd. The free academy is open to adults 18 or older. The deadline for sign up is March 15th. The 10 week program for residents of Newtown and surrounding towns is designed to teach people about the various aspects of law enforcement. Classes will be held on Sundays from 3pm to 6pm. Program leaders say the Citizen Police Academy is a great way to interact with local law enforcement and discuss current issues facing the field of law enforcement.
