Have you every thought about fighting crime and helping your community?
If so, the Wheeling Police Department has the program for you.
Applications are now being accepted for the 6th Citizen Police Academy Class.
The Neighborhood Assistant Volunteers are uniformed individuals who serve at a non-law enforcement capacity.
It goes well beyond wearing a badge, according to Lieutenant Phil Redford.
"Its a great way for people to get a behind the scenes look at what we really do, besides on television. We have several guest speakers lined up and even trips to the shooting range and the prison," added Redford.
If you'd be interested in the 10 week class, you can pick up you application at the Wheeling Police Department or by going onto their website at www.wheelingpolice.com
