The Marietta Police Department announced that the upcoming session of its annual Citizens Police Academy will start on July 29. The program provides an opportunity for the citizens of Marietta to have the chance to experience what it is like to be a police officer.

There is no charge for the 10 week program. Classes will be every Tuesday evening from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Academy is open to residents of Marietta or Marietta business or property owners pending a background check. Applications are available at the front desk of the Marietta Police Department, 240 Lemon St.
