Citizen Police Academy

The Citizen Police Academy (CPA) is an informative, eight-week classroom series that gives an inside look at Pasadena Police operations while discussing the principles of community policing. The purpose of the class is to promote a greater awareness and better understanding of local law enforcement’s continuously changing role in the community.

Presented in a friendly, casual environment, the class covers a wide variety of subject areas including police communications, criminal law and procedures (laws of arrest), street crime enforcement/investigations, field identification, weaponless defense training, youth programs and more. The course concludes with a graduation dinner, where students receive a certificate of completion.

Requirements:

  • Minimum 18 years of age
  • Live, work or, own property in Pasadena
  • No felony convictions
  • No misdemeanor convictions within one year of application

Classes meet on Thursday evenings from 6:00-9:30 pm at the Pasadena Police Department. If you would like to apply for an upcoming class, please contact the Community Services Section at (626) 744-4551 for more information.

*Citizen Police Academy is not intended to make the participant a police officer nor does the acceptance of an application guarantee a placement in the class.
