2019 Seniors Police Academy

The Fredericton Police Force is pleased to announce the 2019 Seniors Police Academy.  The Seniors Police Academy began in 2017 and is a collaborative venture between the Fredericton Police Force and the Force’s Seniors Advisory Committee.

This innovative program focuses on providing local seniors with interesting and educational sessions, and is an insider’s look at general and specialized police services here in Fredericton.

The Seniors Police Academy consists of weekly 3-hour sessions on Tuesday mornings, from October 22nd until November 26th. All sessions take place at Fredericton Police Force Headquarters, and participants will receive a certificate of completion after the six sessions.

Presentation topics will include fraud and crime prevention for seniors, forensic crime scene processing, crime data analysis, 911 communications centre operations, and other specialized police services.

Enrollment is limited – about 20 spots remain - and those interested will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you are 55-years old or older and interested in participating, please contact Constable Mike Bamford at 460-2192 or email michael.bamford@fredericton.ca.
