"Police academies for local communities are a familiar concept in Delaware law enforcement, but this is the first of its kind for the University of Delaware," said UD Police Chief Patrick Ogden. "This academy presents a great opportunity both for the University community and our department, allowing for a new exchange of information and understanding."

The academy will include both classroom and field instruction on the responsibilities facing UD Police officers. Attendees will learn about such issues as use of force, defensive tactics, special operations, criminal investigations, evidence gathering techniques and demonstrations by the SWAT Team and K-9 unit. Participants also will have an opportunity to ride along with an officer and engage in target practice.

The program is free, but attendance is limited to 15 and advance registration is required. To register, visit Registrations forms will be reviewed, and those accepted will be required to complete a short application. Those not selected will be encouraged to apply for the next available session.
