      Learn what it takes to do the job of a police officer

      The Surfside Beach Police Department is giving residents a chance to learn how officers protect the community and what it takes to get the job done on a daily basis.

      Applications for the Citizen's Police Academy are due this Friday.

      You can learn what it is like to drive a police cruiser and dust for fingerprints, among many other topics.

      The academy is held at the Surfside Beach Fire Department from 6:00-8:00 Thursday nights starting January 30 and running until March 6.

      Call Lt. Hofmann for more information at 843-913-6358.
