Ever wonder what it would be like to be a Police Officer? Now you have the chance to find out. The New Bedford Police Department is planning a Citizens’ Police Academy for this fall, and want to hear from interested applicants. Captain Ricard Rezendes joins Jim Phillips this week on Townsquare Sunday, to talk about the Citizens' Police Academy. Those selected will spend a lot of time learning about the law, what officers can and cannot do, and accompany an officer on patrol!

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
