An information session about Franklin's Citizen Academy will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, in the Fadrow Room of the Franklin Public Library, 9151 W. Loomis Road.
Franklin Police Sgt. Patrick Scalise will give an overview of the academy – a 12-week program which gives participants the opportunity to present concerns and questions regarding public safety in the city and learn how citizens and the police can work together to fight crime in Franklin – and how to enroll.
The next academy runs on consecutive Tuesdays from March 7 to May 23, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. each day.
There is no cost to attend the academy, but those interested must apply for a spot in the class. To participate, students must live or work in the Franklin community, submit a written application, be at least 18 years of age or be 16 or 17 and attend with a parent or guardian, and must pass a background check.
Registration is not necessary for the info meeting. For more information, visit the library or call 414-425-8214.
