SOUTH OGDEN -- The South Ogden Department of Public Safety has presented its Citizen’s Police and Fire Academy.

The program offers a first-hand look into how police officers and firefighters perform their duties and the various ways they serve the community. The purpose of this academy is to promote citizen awareness and education into the role of the department of public safety and enhance communication between citizens and public safety employees.

The six-week course is free and the two-hour classes begin Sept. 11. The classes are every Tuesday through Oct. 16. The training will take place at multiple locations, including the South Ogden Department of Public Safety building and the Weber County Jail.

Applications are being accepted now through Sept. 5, and are available at the public safety building, located at 3950 S. Adams Avenue. Those interested need to successfully complete a background check; applicants must be 18 years of age or older and must apply in person. Class size is limited.
