Registration for our spring Citizen’s Academy will open on January 17 at 6:00 p.m. The class is capped at 40 and registration will close after one week, January 24. Last year, the spring class filled up in less than two hours and then a wait list was started. In an effort to meet the high demand for our Citizen’s Academy, we have expanded the class size from 35 to 40 and we offer a spring and fall Academy.
Parker area residents are invited to attend the Parker Police Department’s 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. There will also be a graduation ceremony at the end of the class where friends and family members can attend.
This informative and fun class 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.
