The age-old adage says that to truly appreciate the duties and efforts of someone you must walk in their shoes.  Loosely-correlated, that's the idea behind the Citizens Academy run by the Superior Police Department - a program about to embark on its 16th year.

Right now, the Superior Police Department is seeking applicants from those interested in getting a hands-on experience in what the force does.  Members of the police department will act as teachers to give those taking part a taste of what their line of work entails.

If selected, the participants commit to Wednesday classes that from from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.  There is one Saturday morning session.  Applicants must be 21 years of age, live in Superior, and be able to pass a basic background check.  In addition, applicants must not have any prior felony convictions or habitual offenses on their record.  The class is free. Registration is required - as space is limited to the first 25 people who sign up.

If you're interested, you'll find an online application on  the City of Superior website; click here to get all the details.
