      The Metropolitan Police Department in partnership with the DC Office on Aging is currently finalizing plans to hold its next  Senior Citizen Police Academy .  The academy classes will begin later in September and end before the holiday season.  The classes are scheduled to last six weeks, with 3-hour sessions held twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.


      The series of classes and the academy are designed to educate DC's senior residents on the internal operations of the criminal justice system and to empower them to get more involved with improving the quality of life in their communities.


      Classes will focus on the following topics and areas on interests:


      - The organizational structure of the Metropolitan Police Department and Citizen Advisory Council.


      - The organizational structure of the DC Office on Aging.


      - The process of the District of Columbia 's Judicial System (MPD, OAG, USAO, Superior Court).


      - Community Policing.


      - Community Organizing.


      - Community & Youth Outreach (Including volunteering).


      - Homeland Security.


      - Gun Laws.


      - Financial Crimes, Fraud & Predatory Lending.


      - Auto Theft & Crime Prevention.


      - Homicides & Cold Cases.


      - More.


      At the end of the session, students will participate in a graduation ceremony and sign up for volunteer positions and/or community organizing in the city.  The class is aimed at senior retirees who are looking to enrich their careers and embark upon the next journey in their lives.
