The Longview Police Department Business Police Academy offers local businesses the opportunity to learn more about their police department and actively participate in building even stronger partnerships between the community and the police department.
Classes are held on the third Wednesday of each month. Each 2-hour session will be held during lunch-time (11-1) at the Longview Police Department's Roy Stone Training Center, located at 302 W. Cotton Street. Lunch will be provided to participating class attendees. The purpose of conducting class during lunch is to minimize class member's time away from their job.
The curriculum consists of discussions regarding Department organizations, use of force, narcotics, search and seizure, traffic enforcement, internet crimes, child crimes, and more. Attendees will be offered the opportunity to go to the Longview Police Department's range on Saturday to see the life-saving equipment used by both SWAT and Negotiations in action.
We realize that your schedule may not permit you to attend each class. Please do not let that deter you from applying! The class is FREE and we will provide everything you need to complete this one-of-a-kind experience.
