February: City of White House, TN- Police Department – Citizen’s Police Academy is accepting applications for February 2020.

What is the Citizen Police Academy?

The White House Police Department has found education to be the most effective means of gaining understanding and support from the community. The Citizen Police Academy offers citizens insight into how police officers perform their duties and how their department serves the community.

Note: While completion of the course gives citizens an understanding of the workings of the Police Department, it does not make a participant a certified law enforcement officer, nor is it designed to train citizens to perform any law enforcement duties.

Mission of the Academy

The purpose of the Citizen Police Academy is to foster better communication between citizens and police through education. The Academy will create a nucleus of well-informed citizens who possess greater insight into police practices and services. Graduates of the academy can share their knowledge and experiences with the community as the opportunities arise. Everyone benefits from enhancing a citizen understanding of the role and function of their police department.

Course Description

Instruction consists of one 3-hour class held each week for duration of ten weeks. This instruction is comprehensive, covering a different area of the Division of Police each week. Certified police officers and civilian instructors with particular expertise will conduct classes on each topic. Classes are limited to 30 citizen attendees.

Course Curriculum

Criminal Law
Crime Prevention
Recruitment/Training
Patrol Procedures
DUI Enforcement
K-9/Narcotics Interdiction
Emergency Response
Communications
Internal Affairs
Media/Public Relations
Firearms
Criminal Investigations
Crime Scene Processing
Community Relations, Services and Programs
School Resource Officer Program
D.A.R.E.

Citizen Police Academy Picture 2015
A vital part of the Academy is participation in role playing and scenarios. These simulations will provide an opportunity for a unique “hands-on” learning experience. Students will also have the option, on a voluntary basis, to ride-along with a patrol officer, and attend municipal court and traffic school.

Who may attend the Academy?

Any interested citizen who resides or works in Sumner/Robertson County is encouraged to attend. Citizens involved with the White House community in some way, such as youth involvement, neighborhood watch, and neighborhood groups are very important to the Academy.

Citizens 18 years of age or older.
Citizens with no prior felony convictions.
When is the Academy?

The Citizen’s Academy is held once a year.

Next class will start in February 2020.

(Springfield, TN) Mid-Cumberland Meals-0n-Wheels needs volunteers Needed

Charlie an elderly gentleman said he had not eaten in two days. Our meal site manager went out immediately and drove to the address Charlie had given her which was a small shed in the woods. Charlie opened the door and began to cry because he was so happy someone could help him.

Charlie did have electricity and running water but was dependent on friends to bring him food because he did not drive and had mobility issues. We now bring Charlie meals, and he is gaining strength and so grateful for his meals. In Robertson County you have seniors just like Charlie who need meals, and we are in dire need of volunteers to deliver meals.

It takes about an hour to deliver a route, and the frequency you deliver is up to you. You pick up the meals to deliver between 10-10:30 on weekdays. There are no night or weekend deliveries. Please consider delivering meals. We know Robertson County is a caring community, and we need you. Thank YOU!

Volunteers Needed: Springfield Meal Site
