  MINOT, ND - The City of Minot is offering residents the opportunity to learn what patrolling the streets is like for a police officer, or what goes through a firefighter's mind when battling a blaze.

    The Citizens Public Safety academy is a chance for members of the public to experience first-hand the duties of the Minot Police Department and the Minot Fire Department. The academy includes a wide range of classes and activities to demonstrate how firefighters and police officers serve the public.

    Any resident living in the Minot/Ward County area who is at least 18 years old is eligible to par-ticipate in the academy. Applicants consent to a background check in order to be considered for the program, but applicants with some negative history in their background are not automatically disqualified.

     The academy spans eight weeks, with meetings beginning Sept. 5 and lasting through Oct. 24. Meetings are held each Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

    For the first four weeks, participants join the Minot Fire Department, while the second half of the academy is spent with the Minot Police Department. Participants also have the option to schedule an individual ridealong with the Police Department's patrol division.

    Applications can be printed out from the Minot Police Department website http://www.min-otnd.org/219/Police-Department. Applications are also available by mail or email.

    BISMARCK, ND - - More than 800 people from throughout Bismarck/Mandan are expected to participate in the Bismarck/Mandan Out of the Darkness Community Walk at 5 pm, on Friday, September 8th at the state capitol grounds. This fundraising walk supports the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's local and national programs and its bold goal to reduce the annual rate of suicide 20 percent by 2025.

    "Suicide affects one in five American families. I am walking to bring awareness to this leading cause of death and let people in the community know that they are not alone. There is help out there for those who live with a mental health disorder and support for those who have lost a loved one to suicide," said Susan Wagner, AFSP ND Chapter board member and co-chair of the Bismarck/Mandan Community Walk.

    The Bismarck/Mandan Walk is part of a national Out of the Darkness walk movement, consisting of Community Walks, Campus Walks and two Overnight walks each year. In 2016, AFSP hosted more than 500 Out of the Darkness Walks spanning all 50 states, uniting more than 240,000 walkers and raising millions for suicide prevention research, education and advocacy.

    Proceeds from the walks support programs such as Talk Saves Lives™, an educational presentation on how to recognize the risk factors and warning signs of suicide, and a new film entitled It's Real: College Students and Mental Health that launched this spring. Through fundraising at the walks and other community and national events, AFSP has been able to fund 552 research grants totaling over $34 million dollars since 1987.

    "These walks are about turning hope into action," said AFSP CEO Robert Gebbia. "Suicide is a serious problem, but it's a problem we can solve. The research has shown us how to fight suicide, and if we keep up the fight the science is only going to get better, our culture will get smarter about mental health, and we'll be able to save more people from dying from depression and other mental health conditions."
