Citizens Police Academy
June 13, 2018
The Citizens Police Academy is a great opportunity for the community to meet the Police Officers, Dispatchers, and support staff who serve and protect the City of Hamlet.

Applications can be picked up at Hamlet Police Department starting on June 13, 2018. Applicants will be notified for Interview and selection process 06/25-06/28. Chosen applicants will be notified prior to first meeting.


The intent of the academy is to inform, educate, engage, and empower local citizens with a thorough, behind-the-scenes view of how the department operates. This is to build closer bonds with the community. We intend for our citizens to gain a working knowledge about the City’s overall organization, vision, mission, goals, objectives, budget, policies and procedures. Citizens will also learn day-to-day functions to create civic ambassadors who may enlighten others about our City.
This program does not train citizens to become police officers but will give participants an opportunity to see what police work is all about. Highlights of the program include an overview of the police profession and the criminal justice system, demonstrations by the K-9 units, emergency management and communications, patrol operations/equipment demonstrations, criminal investigations, mock crime scene investigations, traffic and DWI enforcement, mock traffic stops, report writing, arrest techniques, courtroom techniques, personal security information, observations skills, and community reflections.

Throughout the program, class participants are offered the opportunity to ride with an officer while on patrol. They will have the opportunity throughout the program to ask questions, voice concerns, and learn more about the law enforcement profession.


The academy is open to citizens who:

  • Are 21 years of age or older
  • Are a resident of, employee, or business owner in Hamlet
  • Have no felony convictions
  • Have no misdemeanor convictions within one year of application
  • Have no pending criminal charges

All Richmond Community College students may participate.

A criminal background check will be completed on each applicant prior to acceptance into the academy.

The City would like to remind residents that leaves, limbs, pine straw, etc., should not be placed in the street or on sidewalks. These items wash into the drains and cause blockages during rainstorms.

City ordinances state that all tree limbs and leaves need to be placed between the curb and the sidewalk or adjacent to the sidewalk off of the street. Leaves and limbs to be picked up may not exceed 50 pounds and must be within 6 feet in length.

Residents are also reminded that city garbage cans need to be retrieved on the same day as scheduled pick up.

Thank you for helping to make our city a better place to live.
