The Inver Grove Heights Police Department is excited to announce openings for its 2019 Citizen’s Academy. The program is designed to offer citizens an inside look into the Inver Grove Heights Police Department’s operations. A wide spectrum of topics will be covered and include:
Tour and history of the police department
Functions of patrol, investigations, M.A.A.G, negotiators, bike patrol, traffic & K-9 units
Review of typical calls for service
Traffic stops, normal and felony stops
Officer survival, use of force
Laws of arrest
Searching and handcuffing a suspect
The academy classes will be taught by Inver Grove Heights Police Officers. We ask that you make a commitment to attend each session.
Sessions are held once a week on Tuesdays, from Aug. 27 to Oct. 22, from 6 to 9 p.m.
After the successful completion of this program, citizens will be given an opportunity to ride-along with an Inver Grove Heights Police Officer during his or her shift.
