New Senior Police Academy

The Fredericton Police Force is pleased to announce the first annual Seniors Police Academy.

The Seniors Police Academy is a collaborative venture between the Fredericton Police Neighborhood Action Team and the Fredericton Police Force Seniors Advisory Committee.

This innovative program focuses on providing local seniors with interesting and educational sessions, outlining general and specialized police services here in Fredericton.

The Senior Police Academy will run for six consecutive weeks with 2-hour sessions on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 am to Noon, beginning October 24th and running until November 28th.

All the sessions will be held in the newly-renovated police training room at the downtown Police Station at 311 Queen Street in Fredericton.

Some of the topics that will be covered during the program include: Fraud and Crime Prevention for Seniors, Forensic Crime Scene Processing, Major Crime Investigations, Crime Data Analyst, 911 Communications Operators, and the Police Service Dog.

Successful participants will be presented with a graduation certificate at the end of the six sessions.

Enrollment is limited due to classroom size; those interested will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you are 55-year old and older, interested in participating, please contact Constable Duncan Lombard at 461-8290 or email duncan.lombard@fredericton.ca.
