    2. Citizen Police Academy Application

      The Woodland Police Department appreciates your interest in the Citizen Police Academy. Since participants of the Citizen Police Academy will be shown many aspects of law enforcement and a glimpse inside the Woodland Police Department, all applicants are required to complete the enclosed background and application forms. This will assist the Woodland Police Department in determining your suitability for the Citizen Police Academy. The information you provide in the enclosed packet will be kept confidential.

    3. Please complete the packet thoroughly and accurately. Keep in mind:

      1. The completion of all these forms is mandatory. 2. All statements are subject to verification. 3. Deliberate inaccuracies or incomplete statements may bar or remove you from acceptance and/or participating.

    4. Honesty Advisement*

      It is to your advantage to respond openly. Any negative factor in your background will be evaluated in terms of the circumstances and facts surrounding its occurrence. For example, being fired from a job or having an arrest record is not in itself grounds for disqualification. During the investigation, the investigator will inquire into the facts surrounding such an occurrence. An evaluation will then be made of the relevance of these facts to the requirements of attending the Citizen Police Academy.
