Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association

The Battle Creek Citizens Academy Alumni Association is made up of Citizens who have completed the Academy and are interested in being a link between the Police Department and the community.  The active members can:

  • Work with the Citizens Traffic Watch Car enforcing handicapped parking
  • Help with making sure that street lights are working
  • Monitor speeds in neighborhoods
  • Help with making sure that neighborhood streets are appropriately marked with speed limits signs.
  • Attend neighborhood association meetings to bring concerns back to the Police Department
The have also helped with different activities such as:

  • National Night Out
  • The yearly Triathlon
  • Different bike events to help with traffic concerns
Alumni members have worked at MIS Speedway twice a year driving the 6 seat golf carts for disabled people, transporting them to and from the parking lots to the grandstands.  This was a major fundraiser to keep the academy going and to develop the funds needed for projects.
