Vandalia residents offered firsthand look at what police officers face

The City of Vandalia seeks to bridge the gap between residents and police officers with its annual Citizens Police Academy.

Residents can participate in an eight-week program to get a first-hand look behind the scenes of the Vandalia Police Department.

Learn tactics, trends and thought processes of what police do on a day-to-day basis. Participants will get a chance to get behind the wheel of a police cruiser and see things from an officer’s point of view.
