CITIZENS' POLICE ACADEMY

Our citizens' police academy hopes to show students what the  life of a police officer not only Martha's Vineyard but in the Town of Tisbury is like. Students will learn about:

  • MOTOR VEHICLE LAW

  • CRIMINAL LAW

  • COURT PROCEDURES

  • USE OF FORCE/HANDCUFFING

  • BOOKING PROCEDURES

  • ADDICTION/MENTAL HEALTH

  • REALISTIC SCENARIOS USING A SIMULATOR 

  • AND MORE!

This year's academy will run from March 26th until May 28th, with a break for school vacation. It will take place mostly at our station from 6-9pm every Thursday. Watch our thank you video from last year to see what is in store. 

If you are interested in joining us, click "Academy Application", print a copy, fill it out, and return it via e-mail or in person to our station. 

Any questions e-mail Sergeant Sherman, msherman@tisburyma.gov. 

The mission of the Tisbury Police Department is to work together with our residents and visitors to provide safety, security and an enhanced quality of life within our community.
