BEEVILLE – The police department is looking for applicants interested in attending this year’s Civilian Police Academy.

Detective Greg Baron will be instructing the 13-week course beginning sometime in March.

Most classes will be held at the Police Training Center at 708 W. Milam St.

Applications may be picked up at the Beeville Police Department offices at 402 N. Washington St., and they must be returned to that address by Friday, Feb. 14.

Baron said there will be no physical limitations for those wanting to attend the classes. Anyone in a wheelchair, who uses a walker or any other device will be welcome to attend.

However, all applicants must be at least 21 years old.

The course has been popular in the past. Baron said the course will provide training to civilians in police procedures and in the Texas Penal Code.

“This course is designed to give participants an inside look into the operations of the Beeville Police Department,” Baron said.

Those attending the course will have a chance to learn how to use various forms of police equipment, hands on.

The course is expected to include a day at the BPD’s firing range.

Baron said no dates have been selected for the course, but it will be held in March, and trainees will be required to attend at least 10 of the weekly sessions. Classes are expected to last about 90 minutes.

“Come on out and see what we do,” Baron said.
