The Citizen Police Academy (CPA) provides an opportunity for citizens to learn firsthand about police operations. Through a series of lectures, field trips, and simulated activities, citizens are provided training similar to that of an actual police officer. The academy is of benefit to the community and the police department because it builds relationships and creates a cadre of citizens who are better informed about the reality of police work.
The 10-week CPA is held once a year and beings in February. Participants must live or work in Caldwell and be 21 years old or older. The CPA coordinator is LT. ALAN SEEVERS.
