Hey, what's going on at that police department anyway?  Here's how you find out.

The Bangor Police Department will hold another "Citizens Police Academy" beginning on Wednesday, October 20th.  You'll find out what cops really do!

During the ten week program that'll happen on Wednesday nights between 6 and 8:30, you'll be taught and shown things by real police officers of the Bangor Police Department!  Pretty cool, eh?  Even cooler is that it's FREE!

Here's that they'll go over with you:

  • Patrol Overview
  • Criminal Investigations
  • K9 Demonstration
  • Drug Enforcement
  • Crime Scene Inverstigation
  • Special Response Team (SWAT)
  • Bomb Squad
  • OUI Enforcement

Room within the classroom is available on a first-come basis.  You will be subject to a background check, no career criminals admitted. Interested?  Contact Officer Daniel Gastia at daniel.gastia@bangormaine.gov, or call 947-7384, ext. 5754.

And yes,......more than likely you'll be allowed to take a selfie with the Duck.
