Police Department - Citizen's Police Academy

As part of our Community Policing efforts, the Perry Township Police Department will continue to host the Citizen's Police Academy.  The Citizen's Academy affords residents of Perry Township the opportunity to get an in depth look at how the police department functions as an integral part of the community.

Students will hear from Perry Police Officers as well as other local officials from the criminal justice community of Stark County. Classes focus on the department's role in the community, it's purpose for existence, principle accountabilities, goals, mission and objectives but primarily it is an information sharing agenda.  Students will have the opportunity to tour the Canton-Stark County Crime Lab, the Massillon Municipal Court System and to ride along with Perry Police Officers as they perform their duties.   The Citizen's Academy is open to Perry Township residents over the age of 21.

We are currently revising the Citizen's Academy agenda.  Once this is complete we will post class and registration information along contact names and phones numbers or citizen's interested in participating.
