Bay Village Community Police

March 16, 2017


Chief Mark Spaetzel and the Bay Village Police Department are hosting a Community Police Academy beginning on March 16, 2017.

The Community Police Academy is a 10-week program designed to give the public a working knowledge of the Bay Village Police Department. The program will be held for 10 consecutive Thursday nights starting on March 16 from 6:00 - 9:00 PM. Each session will cover separate areas of the Department's operations.

Firearms, communications, patrol, and SWAT are examples of some of the topics to be covered. Instruction will consist of lectures, demonstrations and student participation.

The main goal of the Community Police Academy is provide information to the public that will increase the rapport between the citizens and the officers of the Bay Village Police Department. We also anticipate that the participants will become better aware and informed on how the Bay Village Police Department operates.

We hope that the graduates of the Academy will utilize the knowledge gained through the program to assist the Police Department in its goals of providing a safe community for the citizens of Bay Village.

The Academy is open to anyone 21 years of age and above. The participants will be required to complete an application and sign a waiver form. A background check will be conducted.
