Police seek recruits for community academy


Bellevue Police are seeking applicants for a 12-week community academy where recruits will learn about department operations and policing challenges. The academy requires students to attend one three-hour session one weeknight for 12 weeks.

Classes are free and start at 7 p.m. March 5 at Bellevue City Hall. Instructors include Bellevue officers and personnel, who will teach students about their areas of expertise. Topics to be discussed include hostage negotiations, traffic, patrol, forensics, gangs and investigations, a ride-along with an officer and a chance to fire a few rounds at the department's gun range.

The application can be downloaded.
