SWAT demonstrations, a mock crime scene and a high speed driving track are just a few of the activities in the first ever Parker Teen Police Academy. We’re inviting Parker area teens who are interested in a career in law enforcement or who just want to check out all of the cool things that we do to spend 15 hours with us this summer. July 22-26, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, teens will learn about the Parker Police Department and its programs from the Officers who run them. These interactive classes will give Parker teens working knowledge of what their police department does and how we impact the community.

Whether it’s fast cars, smart dogs or solving whodunit we’re excited to offer these unique experiences to Parker high school aged teens. If you are interested in attending our Teen Police Academy registration opens July 1 on our website and your application must be submitted by July 7.

In order to participate in the program we ask that all applicants are able to attend all five classes.

Parker area residents are invited to attend the Police Department’s free 10-week Citizen's Police Academy program. This program gives participants first-hand information about how the Police Department operates. Classes will focus on criminal law, mounted patrol, evidence, dispatch, traffic laws, accident reconstruction, DUI laws, K-9, youth education programs and many other topics. In addition to the interactive classes, there is an optional trip to the law enforcement firearms training facility where participants will have the opportunity to fire weapons used by the police officers. All attendees will also be invited to participate in a graduation at the end of the program.

The interactive workshops, combined with field trips and tours, requires a commitment of one night a week from 6 to 9 p.m. for 10 weeks. All classes are held on Thursday nights, with the optional Saturday class at the shooting range.

Thank you for your interest in the 2019 spring Citizen's Police Academy. Registration filled up in less than 15 minutes for this popular class. Please watch our website and social media pages in July for an announcement about our fall academy.
