TEWKSBURY – Chief Ryan Columbus is pleased to announce that the Tewksbury Police Department is once again offering a Citizens Police Academy for residents who are interested in learning more about public safety operations.

The academy will run from March 27 to May 22, with classes offered each Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The program is free but space is limited.

Interactive classes will cover topics such as the narcotics unit, traffic stops, crime scene investigations, and canine operations. Attendees will also get to meet members of the department’s many specialty units, as well as patrol officers and staff. 

Residents will learn about the structure and day-to-day operations of the Tewksbury Police Department and its inner workings. The academy is designed to build relationships between the police and the community.

The academy has not been offered since before the COVID-19 pandemic but is intended to be a regular offering.
