Citizens' Police Academy
Our department's Citizens Academy is help in partnership with Cuyahoga Community College.
This program is designed to:
- achieve a stronger level of understanding and safety through building relationships with community members and the local police department
- give the community an in-depth look at what police officers in their city do
- offer insight into more aspects of the job
The Citizens Police Academy consists of 11 consecutive weeks of three (3) hour classes held on the same night each week. It will mirror in as many ways as possible the OPOTA Basic Peace Officer Academy course work.
Participants must complete an applications, sign a waiver, and also pass a background check for criminal history.
