Another Binghamton Citizens Police Academy will be presented starting next month.

City officials say the classes will be offered on Wednesday evenings over a 10-week period. The first session is scheduled for March 26.

The program will highlight police department units. Participants will have an opportunity to go on a ride-along with a police officer.

Three new classes will be included in this spring's Citizens Police Academy. They are: sex offenders and how police monitor their activity; women in law enforcement; and the use of force standards for police and civilians.

People interested in the academy may register by calling 607.772.7093 or by email to

The program is sponsored by the Binghamton Housing Authority.
