    This stay of unusually warm October weather has a countdown to cool. Highs will stay in the 70s and even reach to just shy of record 80s on Saturday before it all comes to a close. The end of the warmth begins late Sunday evening as showers sweep across the Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. This late weekend system will be just the start to a cooler pattern next week; that will bring our coolest temperatures of the season so far.

MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

For $35, Maumee residents can attend an 8-week course that gives them a hands-on look at what the Maumee Police experience on a daily basis.

Their citizens' police academy starts next week. Everything from gun training to special response team drills will be covered, and there will be presentations from judges and the county coroner.

The class starts Tuesday, Sept. 17 and runs every Tuesday from 6-10 p.m. until Nov. 5.

The Maumee Police Department only holds the citizens' academy every 2-3 years when there is a need. There are already about 40 people registered for this year's class.

Sgt. TJ Stratton says the program has been a huge success, and it's a good way for the public to learn about the police, and vice versa.

"I think that most people don't know a lot about the police," he said. "They see a shiny car and they see a uniform, maybe they've been pulled over for a traffic infraction some time, but they don't really know what we're all about. This gives them that inside as to what we do and how we do it, and it puts us on a much more even playing field."

To sign up for the academy, call Sgt. Stratton at 419-897-7017.
