On Thursday, May 16, 2019, the 98th and 99th Citizen Police Academy classes graduated during a ceremony at PromiseLand Church located at 1504 E. 51 St.
The Citizen Police Academy is a comprehensive fourteen-week program designed to give our community a working knowledge of the Austin Police Department. Each session consists of weekly classes taught by various APD units. The instruction is comprehensive, each week different units within the department are covered.
The slogan of the Citizen Police Academy is, “Understanding through Education.” The goal is to educate the public about the Austin Police Department and to increase the rapport between citizens and police officers.
We hope the graduates of the Citizen Police Academy have become more aware and better informed about how the Police Department operates, and will encourage friends, coworkers and families to join the Austin Police Department in this rewarding program.
