A Few Spots Remain for Citizen Police Academy


The 26th session of the Citizen Police Academy (CPA) starting August 7, 2019

FREDERICK, MD – (RD) – The Frederick Police Department is pleased to announce the 26th session of the Citizen Police Academy (CPA) starting August 7, 2019. The CPA is an 8-week program designed to give interested persons an overview of the many functions of The Frederick Police Department. Classes meet every Wednesday evening from approximately 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be a final practical exercise/graduation day on Saturday, September 28, 2019, where participants will receive certificates of completion.

The CPA gives participants instruction in the many aspects of modern law enforcement such as uniformed patrol, criminal investigations, undercover operations, tactical operations, and various other law enforcement functions. There are numerous interactive and hands-on segments such as defensive tactics demonstration and field sobriety.

Upon completion of the program, participants will not be sworn police officers, nor be expected to perform any law enforcement functions; they will, however, have a greater understanding of the Frederick Police Department and how we can work together to make the City of Frederick a better community for everyone.

The CPA is open to any resident of the City of Frederick, person with business interest in the city, and Frederick County residents who are 18-years or older, and have no serious criminal history.
