Citizens Police Academy

Explore the problems and challenges faced by law enforcement and learn how your police department meets those challenges.  Gain a better understanding from the moment a crime is reported through its investigation.  Observe and participate in demonstrations using some of the latest technology available to your local Crime Scene Investigations Unit, Bomb Disposal Unit, Response Team, Crisis Negotiators and participate in a Ride Along with an Officer!  Discover programs that have allowed the police department to partner with youth, businesses, schools and citizens to prevent crime!

Classes have maximum seating of 35 participants.
