The Covington News - - LOCAL - Staff Re­port news@cov­news.com

The Por­terdale Po­lice Depart­ment grad­u­ated its sev­enth Cit­i­zens Po­lice Academy on Sept. 29. The eight-week course gives cit­i­zens an up-close view of the how and why po­lice of­fi­cers do the things they do as they work to serve and pro­tect. The class was started four years ago by Por­terdale’s for­mer chief, Jeff Ja­cobs. The city’s cur­rent chief, Ja­son Cripps, said the pur­pose of the academy is to build a bridge be­tween the po­lice and the com­mu­nity. The depart­ment will hold its eighth CPA in Fe­bru­ary.
