Ever wonder what it is like to work as a police officer? Ever wonder who the men and women are that keep the residents of Southampton Town safe?

Civilians can experience what the men and women of law enforcement do on a daily basis by enrolling in Southampton Town Police Department’s civilian academy.

The 14-week civilian academy starts Jan. 22. It will take place one night per week, from 6 to 9:30 p.m.

Southampton Town residents will have first preference to attend. Non-residents may enroll as space allows. Seats are limited.

To apply, contact Lt. Susan Ralph via email at [email protected] A short application will be
emailed or mailed to you. Completed applications will be accepted until Dec. 27.
