WMPD kicked off the first session of the inaugural Citizen’s Academy tonight. Attendees were given an overview and tour of the police department and then watched a Taser demonstration by the Training Division. Looking forward to next week when the Patrol Division will provide training. It was great to interact with members of our community as we learn from each other.

Let’s light the City blue with these great bulbs!!
