Citizens Police Academy

The Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is a very popular community outreach program which usually takes place annually.

It's a perfect way for residents to become familiar with the basic functions of the police department and learn about the training our officers receive.

Topics Include

  • Officer training requirements
  • Constitutional law presented by the State Attorney’s Office
  • Crime scene investigation and evidence collection
  • Demonstrations by K-9 and SWAT units

There is no cost for the ten-week program. There is absolutely no experience necessary to partake in the activities, just an investment of time and an interest in learning about our police department.
