Police Service Aide Course Offered to Students

APS and APD teaming up to train students at Career Enrichment Center.

July 10, 2013

Albuquerque Public Schools and the Albuquerque Police Department have joined to offer a program for high school seniors to become police service aides (PSA). An informational meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, July 15, at the Roger A. Hoisington Training Academy, 5412 2nd St. NW, for all interested seniors.

APD will offer the class at the APS Career Enrichment Center (CEC) for high school seniors interested in working as police service aides after graduation. The class will meet from 2-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the CEC for both semesters in the upcoming academic year. Students will earn internship elective credit for the class.

The program will provide students with the classroom knowledge and practical skills necessary to work as a PSA. Classroom instruction topics include the criminal justice system, law, physical fitness, patrol and traffic investigations. The classes will be taught by a Police Academy certified instructor.

Upon successful completion of the program students will be eligible to apply for PSA positions that consist of assisting officers on patrol with traffic accidents, misdemeanor offenses, parking enforcement and many other duties and responsibilities. The PSA program will allow students to learn about the Albuquerque Police Department’s policies and procedures prior to entering the Police Academy as cadets.

For more information, please contact Michael Lombardi (lombardi@aps.edu) or counselor Lynn Ramsey (ramsey_l@aps.edu).
