SELAH POLICE CITIZENS ACADEMY 2013
In 2012, after a hiatus of several years, the Selah Police Department once again offered a Citizens Academy. The Academy begins in January and usually runs to the middle of April. Class size is limited to 25-30 participants per class. You do not need to be a resident of Selah, but residents of Selah take priority over non-residents. The Academy is coordinated and managed by Selah Police Officers and Reserve Officers.
Participants of the academy will receive training, classes or presentations on Yakima County's Registered Sex Offender Program, Drug Enforcement, Fire Dept. / Arson Investigation, DUI enforcement, Active Shooter Training, Corrections / Jail tour, Gangs, Taser, Pepper ball, Superior Court, Public Defenders, Traffic Stops, Investigations, Firearms training and Patrol Procedures.
Several Valley agencies participated in the academy. There were speakers from the Selah Police Department, Prosecutors Office, Public Defender's Office, L.E.A.D. Taskforce, Yakima Police Gang Unit, Yakima County Sheriff's Office and Washington State Patrol, just to name a few.
The academy was an overwhelming success with rave reviews from all the participants. One of the most memorable classes was the firearms training class held at the Yakima Training Center. Every person present was able to hold and shoot the same weapons used by the Selah Police Department, as well as some that are no longer in use. The participants were impressed by the knowledge of our firearms instructors and thankful for the opportunity to shoot with us.
