Citizens Police Academy
The Citizens Police Academy is an eight week program designed to give our community a behind the scenes look at how we protect our city. It is held in the Fall of each year and is a one night per week commitment, for 3 hours each night. Topics include: patrol, traffic crash investigations, criminal investigations, crime scene processing, SW.A.T., negotiators, drug task force, and much more. Community members will leave with a much greater understanding of law enforcement operations, specifically within the City of Portland.
