The Lamar Police Department is accepting applications to attend the Public Safety Citizens Academy which will start June 5th, 2014 and run until September 6th, 2014.  This academy will include sessions devoted to Fire and Emergency Medical Services as well as the traditional Police classes.  Once again, the Academy will start on June 5th.
