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 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.

Classes explore many facets of the Police Department., familiarizing participants with everything from crime scene investigation to how 9-1-1 works. This class is great for individuals interested in the day to day functions of police work. The 2016 Citizens Police Academy will occur January 11 through February 10 on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. For information or to apply, call 970-577-3828 or email Commander Corey Pass at
