An Adult Citizens Police Academy, a project of the Carbon County Chief of Police Association, is being formed in Carbon County.
Ken Barnes, chief of police in Mahoning Township and a coordinator, said the academy will be held Tuesday evenings and will continue for 10 weeks. The classes begin on Sept. 14 and end on Nov. 16.
Most of the classes will be held at Jim Thorpe Memorial Hall.
On Nov. 16, there will be a graduation ceremony and certificates will be given out.
Barnes said the Adult Citizens Police Academy is open only to Carbon County residents.
