        There is no academy scheduled at this time.

        The Citizens Police Academy will provide residents from our community with an exclusive look into law enforcement.  Attendees will learn how we train, why we operate in a specific fashion and see just how we work.  The Citizens Academy is a great opportunity for those who are considering a career in law enforcement or those who want to learn a little more about what occurs in Sutton.  All of the classes will be taught by members of the Sutton Police Department.

        For those attendees who are interested, a ride along opportunity will be offered where they will ride with an officer for a portion of their shift.  This is a great opportunity to see what we see and relate it to what is learned in the classroom.     

        The following is a list of topics that will be covered during the Academy:
  • Welcome attendees, introduction, station tour, statistics, cruisers, Dispatch
  • Legal class.  Constitutional law, Massachusetts General Laws and case law.  Listen to calls, radio transmissions and past 911 calls
