Participants will learn about crime scene investigation, firearms, the use of Tasers, speed enforcement, DUI, the K9 unit, emergency response team, dive team, and many other aspects of policing. Participants will also learn about the department’s history.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and live or work in Wilton.
