Citizen's Police Academy

EPPD CPA Classroom

The Citizens Police Academy, established in 1997, was developed to enhance the partnership between community members and the Estes Park Police Department. Officers offer Academy participants an opportunity to learn more about the daily operations of the police department and experience conditions similar to the training police receive.

Classes explore many facets of the Police Department, familiarizing participants with everything from crime scene investigation to how 9-1-1 works. The Academy is ideal for individuals interested in the day-to-day functions of police work. The 2018 Citizens Police Academy will occur January 8 through February 8, on Monday and Thursday nights, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. For information or to apply, contact Captain Corey Pass at 970-577-3828 or
