The academy spans five weeks and will teach participants patrol tactics, defensive tactics, city special events procedures, parades and traffic control and will also receive instruction from the Ypsilanti Fire Department.
According to the VSC website, volunteers only observe and report and do not make contact with anyone engaged in questionable activity. Members of the VSC will wear uniforms and be issued police radios.
