National Citizens Police Academy Association – Agency of the Year 2015

Awarded to an NCPAA member’s police department or public safety agency for outstanding efforts in conducting a Citizen Police Academy program and promoting the CPA concept. Citizens Police Academy programs being conducted around the nation are one of the most powerful tools in educating, informing and involving those the police department serves. The focus and aim of the Citizen Police Academy must allow citizens to become familiar with the day to day operations of the police department and enable participants to gain a better understanding of the policies and procedures of the agency, the law, local ordinances and charter which govern and mandate the operations of the police department, engaging them in hands-on activities that allow participants to gain a working knowledge of actual policing tactics and risks.
