Amarillo Police Department is now taking applications for the 26th Amarillo Police Department Citizen's Academy. If you want to know what life is like behind the scenes at the police department, this is your chance.

According to a post on the APD Facebook page, applications are now being accepted. They are looking for people from "all walks of life."

The academy will run from 6PM - 9PM on Tuesday evenings beginning on September 17th, and will last until November 26th.

Comments on the post from previous attendees highly recommend the experience. The academy will take you through what happens when the APD receives a call for assistance, to what a day in the life of an officer is like.
