Police Citizens Academy

About the Program

The next class will take place in the Fall of 2018!

The Police Citizens Academy is a free program offered by the Police Department every even year in the 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, ride-along, and hands-on exercises.

The class usually takes place for approximately 10 weeks, on Wednesday evenings from 6-9 p.m.
At graduation, each participant will receive a certificate of completion from the City of Coon Rapids.
