Citizens Police Academies

Citizen Police Academies are one of the most beneficial programs in our communities. By focusing on educating citizens on the basics of the law enforcement, they open the lines of communication and create a positive community-based relationship between residents and police.

Participants in the academy will become aware of the problems facing the police departments today and learn how police departments function to serve their community.

Topics discussed may include:

  • Vehicle stops 
  • Shoot/don’t shoot situations 
  • Personal and home security 
  • SWAT operations 
  • Crime scene investigations (CSI) 
  • Laws and ordinances 
  • Traffic safety 
  • Gangs and club drugs 
  • K-9 demonstration

Police Academies create well-informed citizens with greater insight into police practices and services. Every participant benefits from enhancing their understanding of the role and function of the Police Department.
