The Missouri City Police & Fire Departments will be conducting their annual Citizen's Police & Fire Academy beginning April 13th, 2010. The Academy is a seven week program, free to citizens of Missouri City. Classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7pm to 10pm at the Missouri City Public Safety Headquarters located at 3849 Cartwright Rd. in Missouri City.
Participants will be provided with a unique insight into the daily operations of the Missouri City Police & Fire
Departments. Participants will receive hands-on training in both Police & Fire operations to include: traffic laws, criminal law, firearms training simulator, motor vehicle extrication using the jaws-of-life, CPR, live fire demonstration, and much more. There will be a staged SWAT operation, Dive Rescue Team demonstration, traffic stops, building searches, and crime scene investigations. A new feature will be a trip to the firing range where each participant will have the opportunity to shoot a Glock .40 caliber hand gun. This is an opportunity for the Citizen's of Missouri City experience what it is like to be a police officer or fire fighter!
Applications can be picked up at the Missouri City Public Safety Headquarters at any time or down loaded from the Missouri City website. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and either live or work in Missouri City. The class will be limited to 25 participants. After completing the academy, members will be eligible to join the Missouri City Police & Fire Auxiliary and/or the Citizen's Response Team.
