Wharton PD now accepting citizen’s police academy applications

The Wharton Police Department is now accepting applications for their Citizen’s Police Academy, starting Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 .

The course will be held every Tuesday night for 11 weeks, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., at the Wharton Civic Center, located at 1924 N. Fulton, Wharton, TX. 77488.

Chief Terry David Lynch invites the community to come be a part of our Wharton Police Department family from the inside out.

During the free 11 week course, you’ll be exposed to many areas of our profession that include, but not limited to, patrol procedures, ride-alongs, criminal investigations, dispatch, evidence collection, narcotic investigations and much, much more.

This is a great opportunity for members of our community to learn how to better police with those sworn to protect the community we all live, work and play in.

The application process will close on August 12th, 2017.

If you’re wanting an application emailed to you, please contact Detective Soltura at asoltura@cityofwharton.com.
