SBPD Police Academy gets underway


If you're looking for a cool opportunity to see the inner-workings of a police department, here's your chance.

The Spring session of the 2013 Citizens Police Academy at the South Bend Police Department is about to get underway.

You get to see all kinds of things from the forensics lab... to how the bomb squad operates.

You'll also learn it takes a lot longer to solve a case than it does on those slick T-v crime dramas!

Lt. Patrick Hechlinski says, "This is a really good eye-opener. for them to say this is when we start a case. This is how we bring it to close and there's a lot more work than just what you see on TV."
