Get involved and educate yourself by training at a Citizen Police Academy near you.
The Citizen Police Academy is a program designed to educate the public about how the local police department operates and dedicated to helping build rapport between citizens and officers. In Austin Texas, the program takes place over a fourteen-week period, with weekly classes covering the various units within the police department. Graduates of the program will emerge with a better understanding of everything the police department handles and how officers work hard to keep their local communities safe.
In addition to the program in Austin, there are also Citizen Police Academies in the cities of Lakeway, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Buda, Pflugerville, and Bastrop just to name a few. While the overall goals of each program are the same, please keep in mind that the course schedule and timeline will vary for each city’s Academy.
All participants must submit an application to join the program and consent to a background check. Applicants must be 21 or older to participate. To learn more about who is eligible for the program, please click here for the Austin Police Department Citizen Police Academy Disqualifiers.
