Community Police Academy

About the Program

The Community Police Academy is a new redesign of the old "Citizens Academy" offered by the Police Department twice a year in the spring and fall as an educational tool to show the public the role of modern law enforcement. Participants learn a variety of topics and participate in lectures, demonstrations, tours, and hands-on exercises.

The class usually takes place for approximately 2 weeks, for 2 evenings each week from 6 to 9:30 p.m. At graduation, each participant will receive a certificate of completion from the City of Coon Rapids.
