SUPERIOR - Neighbors are stepping up and getting involved, all in the name of public safety.
Sixteen community members are meeting every Wednesday night to help address crime in the area.
For 12 years, the Superior Police Department has been holding a Citizens' Academy to help raise awareness, as well as educate the community on local crime.
The academy gives citizens a chance to understand how the department operates, and gives them an inside scoop on the investigation division, canine department, and the statistics behind everything.
The police department says it's an opportunity for the community to share their concerns with their neighbors, and for the department to update them on what's going on in their area.
Every Wednesday through Nov, 1, the volunteers will meet for four hours to work together and help address crime.
The Superior Police Department is thankful for the interest, and encourages more people to sign up next year.
