Citizens Police Academy

About the Program
The Huntsville Police Department is inviting citizens of Huntsville to participate in their Citizens Police Academy. The CPA is a 13-week program that will meet from 6 - 9 p.m. at the Huntsville Police Department every Monday night. The next CPA will begin on January 25, 2016. Applications are being accepted through November 30, 2015. Apply now, as space is limited!

What to Expect

During the 13 weeks, participants will hear from HPD Officers and employees discussing their roles and responsibilities within the Department. There will also be guest speakers from other criminal justice agencies within Huntsville and Walker County, including Juvenile and Adult Probation and the District Attorney's Office.

Participants will tour the County Jail and the Communications Center, ride with a police officer and explore the Firing Range. The HPD strives to make this class hands-on and enjoyable while educating the participants about the police department and the local criminal justice system.
