The purpose and mission of the Citizen Police Academy is
to foster better understanding between citizens and police
through education. The Academy will promote better understanding
to the attendees so that they may possess greater insight
into police practices and the services that we provide.
Graduates of the Academy can share their knowledge and experiences
with the community as the opportunity arises.
