Citizens police academy

Graduates of the citizens police academy are recognized at the June 10 meeting of Seaside City Council.

There was more than one graduation in Seaside Monday night.

Along with graduating seniors from Seaside High School at the convention, the Clatsop County Citizen’s Police Academy celebrated its 12th by adding state police to the mix, along with Cannon Beach, Seaside and other jurisdictions who work with citizens to teach them what goes on behind the scenes in law enforcement, especially locally.

“It’s certainly different than what you hear and see,” Cannon Beach Police Chief Jason Schermerhorn said.

Among graduates, Regina Jones enjoyed it so much she took the class a second time, Schermerhorn said.

Seaside City Councilor Steve Wright was also a graduate of the citizens academy, which met every Tuesday evening from April to June.
