The Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department is proud to present its very first Citizens Police Academy.
This is an opportunity for local community members to participate in an informative 10-week program designed to provide an inside look at local law enforcement. During academy training, students will be introduced to a wide range of topics designed to provide participants with an overview of the Police Department’s function and operational procedures. A primary goal of the Citizens Police Academy is to increase understanding between our residents and the Police Department, and to enhance the strong relationships we have with the community. Topics covered include patrol operations, laws of arrest, investigations, records processing, traffic laws, communications, defensive tactics, supportive resources and much more. The curriculum will be presented by Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department personnel and other community resources that collaborate with our Department to keep our neighborhoods safe. The course will consist of one 3-hour evening session per week for the duration of the course. The Citizens Police Academy is a great way to get to know the men and women of the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department and gain a better understanding of the role of the police in the community.
The Academy runs March 19, 2020 - May 21, 2020 with scenarios and graduation on May 28, 2020.
