Citizens Police Academy



Our next Citizen Police Academy dates have not been set.  Please continue to check here or our Facebook page for the latest information regarding the next class!


Classes will be approximately three hours in length, meeting every Thursday from 07:00 PM to 10:00 PM. The goal of the department’s Citizen Police Academy is to enhance communication and understanding between the department and citizens. In an overall approach to community policing, citizens will participate and learn about their police department, its mission and goals, and the men and women of the department who serve the community on a daily basis. Each week, students will learn about different aspects of law enforcement to include: laws of arrest, patrol techniques, domestic violence and crisis intervention, firearms safety, crime scene management, and traffic enforcement. Students will be given many opportunities for hands-on learning both in and outside of the actual classroom.

Once students graduate, our goal is to have a continued partnership.  Interested graduates will be given the opportunity to continue as volunteers and help assist police with different city functions.  They will be a part of a group called “Citizens on Patrol”.  More information about the goals and requirements of this group will be detailed during academy classes.
