     Citizens Police Academy
The Citizen's Police Academy is a free 13 week series of classes that is designed to enhance relationships with community members by familiarizing academy participants with the Edmond Police Department, its policies, and practices.

The intent of the Citizen Police Academy is not to train citizens to become police officers, but to show participants first hand the daily responsibilities and expectations of the occupation of police officers and other police staff. Participants ask questions, discuss issues, and view demonstrations.

Sample Topics Covered Include:
  • Accident Investigation
  • Crime Prevention
  • Crime Scene Investigations
  • Firearms
  • Shoot / Don’t Shoot
  • Special Investigations
  • Use of Force

It is desired that upon completion of the Citizen's Police Academy, participants will have a clearer understanding of the duties, responsibilities, and community interaction expected from police officers and will share their knowledge with others in the community.

Requirements to Attend:
  • Minimum age of 18 years
  • No criminal record
  • Must be an Edmond resident or work in Edmond City limits
  • Candidates are encouraged to attend all classes

Fall 2016 class is full.  Please check back in January for the Spring 2017 sign up.

Location and Cost
There is no cost to participate. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm in the Public Safety Center located at 100 East First Street. One class will be held at the Edmond Police Department Firearms Range.
