Third Citizen’s Police Academy

by Sgt. Matthew Waugh
August 24, 2016

This will be a hands-on, interactive, behind-the-scenes program taught by instructors who will share their unique perspective on law enforcement.


Graduates of the 2015 Citizens Police Academy

The Holliston Police Department has scheduled its third Citizen’s Police Academy for September 14th through November 9th.  The focus of this nine-week academy is to educate citizens about the Holliston Police Department, its organization, operations and role in the community.  Participants gain an understanding of police department responsibilities and the laws that govern it.  The concept of the Citizen's Police Academy involves opening the Holliston Police Department to the public, and showing citizens exactly what we do and how we do it.  Given our commitment to the community and proactive problem solving, we see the Citizen's Police Academy as an effective way of bringing law enforcement and the public together in an informal, educational forum

As a result of attending, graduates of the Citizens Police Academy will be better equipped to assess safety issues and share with others their knowledge of law enforcement practices and policies.  Classes will be taught by members of the police department and other individuals in the criminal justice field.  This will be a hands-on, interactive, behind-the-scenes program taught by instructors who will share their unique perspective on law enforcement.  Topics covered will include: crime scene investigations, narcotics investigations, traffic crash investigations, traffic enforcement, use of force tactics, firearm simulator, OUI detection and enforcement, and an introduction to the K9 unit.  A police ride-along, which will be individually scheduled, will also be offered prior to graduation.

There is no cost to attend the Academy and it is open to all residents 17 and older.  Classes will be held Wednesday evenings, 5:30pm-8:30pm in the John E. Johnson Memorial Training Room at the police department.  Background checks are done on all applicants and unsuitable candidates need not apply.  Accepted applicants are expected to attend every class, as space is limited.  Those interested are asked to email Sergeant Matthew Waugh at Waugh@HollistonPolice.com.

Police Log for Week of June 9 - 15, 2019

by Paul Saulnier

Last week's lowlights include a rock party on Washington, a parade of one on Gretchen and one frustrated and creative driver solves the rush hour traffic problem down town (no he didn't shoot out the lights). Officers are taught to place a hand on the car as they approach. Why? Because if in the course of the stop the officer is murdered and the driver takes off, the officer's finger prints on the car will prove that he stopped the car.
