Michigan State Police

The Michigan State Police Jackson post is organizing a citizens police academy to familiarize residents with the department's mission, operation and local personnel. Participants will meet from 5:30 to 8 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday from Oct. 10 to Oct. 31 in a classroom at the state police post, 3401 Cooper St. Information will be presented through Power Point and demonstrations by state police employees. An Oct. 31 graduation ceremony will end the academy. The idea is to make people aware of law enforcement's role in the community and state police procedures, and to get to know Jackson troopers, according to a statement.Line
