The Delaware State Police recognized 20 graduates during a ceremony for the Citizen’s Police Academy Class on May 10 at the Delaware State Police Troop 3, Camden.

The academy class learned about a variety of police activities consistent with what a Delaware Trooper experiences today during the seven consecutive sessions. The class, which ran March 29 through May 10, included criminal and traffic investigations, special units, tours and various other law enforcement related topics. Additionally, participants had the opportunity to ride with patrol troopers.

During this program the CPA attendees sacrificed their valuable time to learn more about the DSP and it various units. Some of the highlighted presentations and special units who presented consisted of the DSP Museum, DSP Academy, K-9 Demonstration, Collision Reconstruction Unit, Violent Intruder Preparedness and Response, Delaware Gaming Enforcement, DSP Mounted Patrol Unit, Special Operation Response Team, Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Scuba Team, Motorcycle Unit, Community Outreach Unit and the Firearms Training Unit.

On the final night of the program, the class was recognized by the keynote speaker, Superintendent of the Delaware State Police, Col. Nathaniel McQueen Jr., Lt. Col. Monroe Hudson and Operations Officer for Kent and Sussex County Maj. Sean Moriarty. They presented formal certificates of appreciation to the class attendees.
