For all those wannabe police officers out there, or anyone wondering what it’s like to fire a Glock or to see the inside of a jail cell — here’s your chance. The next Oldham County Citizen’s Police Academy will run for 10 weeks starting April 14.
Classes will cover topics such as drug enforcement, the canine police unit and the Oldham County Jail. Residents will also visit a firing range and ride along with a police officer during a shift. The academy is free. Classes are three hours long and will mostly take place on Tuesday nights at the La Grange Fire Station 2 in Buckner. To apply, visit oldhamcountypolice.com, visit the department at 1855 N. Ky. 393 in Buckner or call Lt. Tim Wakefield at 222-1300, ext. 110.
