Applications being accepted for Citizens Police Academy Fall 2016 Session
The Lancaster City Citizens’ Police Academy (CPA) offers citizens the opportunity to learn about the internal operations of the Lancaster City Police Department. The Citizens’ Police Academy speakers, (mostly Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice experts in their fields), provide lectures, demonstrations, tours, and hands-on activities for Academy participants.
The overall objective of the Academy is to provide citizens with sound and accurate information about the Lancaster City Police and the criminal justice process so citizens are able to make informed decisions regarding issues/matters involving the police department and/or police activity. Participants will be able to share their experiences and learned information with family, friends, co-workers, and their community to further improve and strengthen community-police relations. The Academy is open to anyone 18 years of age or older; however, priority is given to Lancaster City residents.
Each week, a different discipline or area of the Lancaster City Police is presented such as: Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Lancaster Countywide Communications (police dispatch), SERT, K9, Mounted Patrol, and Firearms Range Operations.
