The Zone Watch Academy

What is the Academy

The Academy is a training program specially designed for members of the Zone Watch program.  This training will introduce members to the basics of policing, the criminal code and the duties of Zone Watch members.

The NEW 8  hour program will be offered a few times each year for members to attend before they are approved as members of the Zone Watch program.  This is a great opportunity for the members to be introduced other community minded members of the program and officers involved in the Zone Watch program

After completing the 8 hour training session, participants will graduate from the Academy and be ready to provide input to make our community safer.

We offer special presentations throughout the year to discuss items of interest to members so they have a clearer understanding of the issues impacting our community and the role of the police and other agencies to deal with these issues.
