Citizens Academy Episode 1 – The NPD Structure


Last year, the Needham Police Department hosted a six-week program, which intended to help residents understand how local enforcement works. A variety of police officers demonstrated on a range of topics including use of force, criminal law and procedure, crime scene investigation, community resources and regional collaborations.

The Needham Channel is presenting you a six-episode series that cover most of the demonstrations from the workshop. Each episode will run two weeks on our Community, Municipal, Education and HD Channels, starting January 3rd, 2022.

You can watch the first episode on demand now, where Chief John Schlittler introduced the various positions in the Department and their responsibilities. Click the video box below to watch!
