FPD Invites you to join our Citizen Academy Starting September 21st!

The Fullerton Police Department invites you to join our next Citizen’s Academy which starts September 21, 2016.

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 that 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 Police Department. Students will meet Police Chief Dan Hughes, the Police Captains, Managers, Patrol Officers, Detectives, Dispatchers, and other Department staff members.

We encourage participants to ask question 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.

Classes are Wednesday Nights from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
