A major goal of the Community 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 law, communications, defensive tactics, supportive resources and much more.
Students will participate in informative classroom-style presentations as well as practical demonstrations with a variety of Police Department personnel.
Instructors are drawn from all areas in the Department. Students meet the Chief of Police, managers, supervisors, patrol officers, detectives, dispatchers, and other department employees.
