Fullerton Police Department Citizen Academy

The Fullerton Police Department invites you to join our next Citizen’s Academy. The Citizen’s Academy will provide you the opportunity to see first hand the functions of your police department. During the 10-week course, you will be exposed to the many aspects of police work in your community. Students will gain an overall knowledge of the Fullerton Police Department, how we are organized, how we serve the community, and whom the people are who respond when citizens call.

This course is not meant to train people to be police officers. Rather, it is intended to open communication between the community and law enforcement. Instructors are drawn from all levels of the department. Students will meet Police Chief, Dan Hughes, the captains, the managers, patrol officers, detectives, dispatchers, and other department staff members.

We encourage students to ask questions and discuss those issues relevant to the topics presented. A major goal of the Citizen’s Police Academy is to increase understanding between citizens and their police department, and to build a strong and long lasting relationship. Each academy participant will have an opportunity to participate in a Ride-Along with a patrol officer.
