COMMUNITY POLICE ACADEMY

COURSE OVERVIEW

The Community Police Academy will provide community members with an inside look at the Police Department and various facets of law enforcement. 

During the ten-week academy, students will be introduced to police operations and participate in a firearms safety demonstration, take a tour of Air Support Division and Communications Division facilities.  Other topics include: Community Policing, Criminal Law, Internal Affairs and Discipline, Patrol Procedures, Vice Activities, Crime Prevention, Detective Investigations, Drug Enforcement, Crime Scene Investigations and Traffic Enforcement.

PURPOSE

The ten-week academy is designed to give community members an overview of the Police Department’s policies and procedures.  More importantly, it provides an opportunity for the community members and Police Department personnel to form a partnership.  The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional law enforcement academy; however the weekly sessions are not designed to certify the participant as a law enforcement officer.
