Community Police Academy

About the Program

The next class will take place in April 2019!

The Community Police Academy is a new redesign of the old "Citizens Academy" offered by the Police Department twice a year in the spring and fall as an educational tool to show the public the role of modern law enforcement. Participants learn a variety of topics and participate in lectures, demonstrations, tours, and hands-on exercises. 

The class usually takes place for approximately 2 weeks, for 2 evenings each week from 6-9:30 p.m. At graduation, each participant will receive a certificate of completion from the City of Coon Rapids. 

How to Sign Up: 

Applicants can register for the program through our online registration system.
