Bangor Community Police Academy Taking Applications

The Bangor Police Department is accepting applications for its Community Police Academy, a chance to get a look behind the scenes of law enforcement.

When most of us interact with the police, it’s for things like speeding tickets or neighborhood disputes. But there’s a lot more involved in being a cop than just handing out tickets and breaking up fights. So the Bangor Police Department is inviting residents to attend a 10-week program that will give a more complete picture of the role of law enforcement officers.

Each Tuesday, starting on October 4th, attendees will explore a variety of topics, including a patrol overview, criminal investigations, drug enforcement, crime scene investigations, SWAT, the bomb squad, and OUI enforcement. There will also be a K9 demonstration. Officer Dan Gastia tells us that the classes are held in the Bangor Police Department between 6 and 8:30 p.m. and won’t involve any ride-along situations.

Folks must be at least 18 years old to attend, and Gastia tells us that it’s a perfect opportunity for everyone to learn more about police work, including anyone who is thinking about pursuing a career in the field. There is a background check and anyone with a felony conviction or significant criminal history will not be accepted.

Folks interested in attending can pick up an application at the Bangor Police Department or by applying online. For more information, log onto the Bangor PD’s website.
