The Citizens Police Academy is your opportunity to learn more about how the Battle Creek Police Department operates. The Academy runs once a year. The Citizens Police Academy is a group of Battle Creek area citizens who are interested in learning more about how their Police Department operates and the policing challenges our community faces. Participants in each session commit to meeting for 3 hours, 1 night per week for 10 weeks to learn about each aspect of the department.
The purpose of the Battle Creek Police Citizens Academy is to develop positive relations between the police and community through education. The goals are to create a growing nucleus of responsible, well-informed citizens who have the potential of influencing the public opinions about police practices and services. Citizens will gain an appreciation of the problem and challenges facing law enforcement and have an opportunity to offer comments and ideas regarding solutions.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older. They must be a resident of the City of Battle Creek, Bedford Township, a business owner in the area or otherwise have a vested interest in the community. Participants will be chosen at the discretion of the Chief of Police.
