The Citizens Police Academy, established in 1997, was developed to enhance the partnership between community members and the Estes Park Police Department. Officers offer the Academy participants an excellent opportunity to learn more about the daily operations of the police department and experience conditions similar to the training they receive.
The 10-session academy curriculum includes instruction in DUI Enforcement, Constitutional Law, Use of Force issues, Accident Investigation, Communications Center, Crime prevention and more. Academy members can ride along in a patrol car to experience first hand the activities police officers are called upon to manage.
The Estes Park Police Department currently offers one Academy annually. There is no cost, just an eagerness to learn about our police services. The Academy will run from January 9 - February 9, 2012 on Monday and Thursday nights from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
