LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Spots for Lafayette Citizens Police Academy are filling up and there are only a few days left for you to register and get a behind the scenes look at the Lafayette police department.

Wednesday, September 18 is the first class of the Lafayette Citizens Police Academy fall session. Every Wednesday for eight weeks you'll learn about the inner workings of LPD including a better understanding of the role law enforcement plays within the criminal justice system. Outside of the classrooms, you're encouraged to do a ride-along with the officers.

Lt Scott Galloway said people don't normally interact with the police unless its a traffic stop or a parking problem so the Citizen's Police Academy gives people a chance to see what else officers do.

"It's for transparency," said Lt. Scott Galloway of Lafayette Police Department. "It's good for the community to know exactly how the police department operates and again we don't hold anything back. We show exactly how we do the job we do."

Registration does require a criminal background check and fingerprinting completed by LPD. You must also be at least 18 years old to register and classes are free. Spots are limited, click here to register. 

The classes are held in the Lafayette City Hall Council Chambers on 6th street. Classes are at night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and wrap up on November 7.
