SBPD Accepting Applications for Citizens Academy

The Santa Barbara Police Department is now taking applications for the next English language Citizens Academy, which will begin Jan. 23.

The Citizens Academy is a great way to learn about the Santa Barbara Police Department, police work, and the community. During the eight-week program participants will be exposed to police training, investigative techniques, and technology. They also will have the opportunity to ride along with officers on patrol.

Classes will be held weekly on Mondays from 6-8 p.m. until March 13 at the Santa Barbara Police Department. This program is very popular and class size is limited. There is no cost to participate.

For more information, contact Officer Adrian Gutierrez, 897-3702 or [email protected], or visit www.sbpd.com.

— Sgt. Riley L. Harwood for the Santa Barbara Police Department.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
