After completion of the academy, you will have a better understanding of how emergency calls are received and dispatched, how Detectives investigate crimes, how Crime Scene Technicians collect and analyze evidence and more.
Each week, you will be exposed to the various divisions and specialized units at the Rosenberg Police Department. Topics will include:
