Citizen Police Academy - 2016

There are still some openings for this year's class of the Citizen Police Academy, which starts September 8th, 2016.

For more information please go to this page on the city's web site.

The academy is a great learning opportunity for citizens to find out more about what our PD does, and how they learn to do it.  It is set up in such a way that a citizen gets to experience (albeit in a very shortened version) what an officer goes through in their training. 

You may have noticed at various city events citizen volunteers for the PD.  These are individuals who have graduated from the academy and who have chosen to become members of the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association.  Joining the association after graduation is not a requirement, but if you are desirous of volunteering for some of these events, this is where it starts.
