Citizen Police Academy

Applications now being accepted for the program.
Post Date:June 21, 2019
Lewisville Police Department is now taking applications for its annual Citizen Police Academy. This informative partnership between citizens and police officers was established for people who want to know more about their police department, officers, and the duties and responsibilities of each section of LPD.

Classes begin Thursday, Aug. 8, and continue through Thursday, Oct. 31. Most classes are held on Thursday evenings at the main LPD facility, 1187 W. Main Street. Classes begin at 7 p.m. and typically run three hours. There is no cost to attend the Citizen Police Academy, but the 13-week course does require a substantial time commitment. Students will not be allowed to graduate if they miss more than three sessions.

Topics of instruction include gang intervention, narcotics, family violence, K-9 program, Special Weapons and Tactics, and criminal investigations. Citizen Police Academy graduates are eligible to apply for the Lewisville “Citizens on Patrol” volunteer program.

Two optional classes will be held on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon for more hands-on training. Students will spend one day at the department’s firing range, one day studying defensive tactics, one six-hour day attending defensive driving, and one six-hour day becoming certified to administer CPR. One final day of practical exercises allows students to be the officer in controlled scenarios with alumni and officers.
