Residents are being given a chance to get an inside look at the workings of the Binghamton Police Department.

Mayor Richard David says the City Police and Binghamton Housing Authority are gearing up for the spring 2016 Citizen Police Academy.

The free, ten-week course highlights several units within the Police Department, taught by police officers.

Classes will be held Wednesdays from 6:30 TO 8:30 p.m. March 23 to June 1.

Registrations can be emailed to Lieutenant Michael Whalen at or by calling 772-7093.
