Citizens Academy

The Tallmadge Police Department has teamed up with Cuyahoga Falls, Stow, Silver Lake and Munroe Falls Police Departments to present a Citizen’s Police Academy. Western Reserve Hospital has been the sponsor for the past several years. The Academy is for members of these communities to get to know and better understand their police departments. Each September about thirty residents of the communities participate in the seven-week program which meets for two hours on Wednesday evenings. Classes are instructed by members of the various departments and rotated through the different buildings. Registration for the 2020 program will be announced during the summer.
