The Prescott Valley Police Department will conduct its 2020 Citizen’s Police Academy from August 25th to October 20th.
Classes will take place Tuesday evenings from 6-9 p.m. The majority of the classes will be at our new state of the art training room at 7601 E. Skoog Blvd., Prescott Valley. Two classes will be at the Prescott Valley Public Library and one class will be at the Northern Arizona Regional Training Academy (NARTA) There is no charge for the Academy, and the public is invited. There will be no class on October 6th in observance of National Night Out.
The 8-week Academy is an in-depth look at the mission, philosophy, and operations of the department, and the extensive training that our officers receive before and throughout their service to our residents. An example of the subjects include: firearms training, special weapons and tactics, hostage negotiations, traffic and DUI enforcement, gang task force, volunteers in policing, and much more. Attendees will get to be up close and personal with our amazing K9 officers.
