Spring Citizen's Police Academy

Parker residents are invited to attend the Police Department's spring Citizen's Police Academy. This program gives participants first-hand information about how the Police Department operates. Participants will learn about evidence collection and crime scene management, dispatch, SWAT, accident reconstruction, DUI laws, K-9 Units, School Resource Officer Program and many other topics.

The classroom work, combined with field trips and tours, requires a commitment of one night a week from 6 to 9 p.m. Dinner will be provided to students before class begins. All classes are held on Thursday nights, with an optional Saturday class at the shooting range to fire weapons used by police officers. Classes start on March 2 and finish on June 8.

Participation is limited to the first 40 qualified registrants ages 18 and older. Anyone who does not get into the current class will be added to a waitlist and given priority registration for the next class.

Please visit our Citizen's Police Academy page for more information and to register.
