The Honolulu Police Department is currently accepting applications for its Business Police Academy.
The eight-week program is modeled after the department’s popular Citizens Police Academy with an emphasis on crimes that directly affect businesses.
The program covers such topics as identity theft and Internet crimes, forgery, shoplifting and employee theft, robbery, security, and workplace violence.
The next BPA will begin in early September and run through late October. Classes will be held in the evening and meet weekly at the HPD’s Alapai headquarters.
The deadline to apply is August 8.
