The Citizens Police Academy gives participants a look inside the day-to-day operations of the Department, and the guidelines in which officer’s function. Students will be introduced to topics on media and the law, firearms training, gang awareness, patrol functions, K-9 functions, criminal investigations, school violence, traffic law, and use of force. Instruction in these police procedures and theory is combined with practical, hands-on scenarios from officers in their fields.
