A major goal of the Citizens Police Academy is to increase understanding between our citizens and the Police Department and to enhance the strong relationships we have with the community. Topics covered include patrol operations, laws of arrest, investigations, records processing, traffic laws, communications, defensive tactics, supportive resources and much more.
Students will participate in informative, classroom-style presentations, as well as practical demonstrations with a variety of Police Department personnel. Instructors are drawn from all areas in the Department. Students have the opportunity to meet the Chief of Police, managers, supervisors, patrol officers, detectives, dispatchers and other department employees.
