In an effort to educate and inform the community, the Wyoming Police Department provides its residents and business owners a voluntary opportunity to learn more about the Wyoming Police Department through the Citizens Police Academy. The eleven-week program includes lectures, presentations, as well as hands-on activities to inform and demonstrate to participants the many facets of law enforcement and to introduce the members of the police department. This stimulating and informative program will give each participant a better sense of the Wyoming Police Department and the issues concerning everyday operations. Citizens will also gain a better understanding of their role in the police department's Community Oriented Policing philosophy.
The purpose of the Citizens Police Academy is to foster better communications between citizens and police through education and understanding. A well-informed citizen is more likely to share their experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizen's understanding of the role and function of their police department.
We encourage you to apply for the next Citizens Police Academy when it is offered. The academy typically meets weekly from 6:30 p.m. -9:30 p.m., in the Wyoming Safety Services Facility meeting room. There will be two nights the course will go from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. There is no cost to participants. Please contact Chief Brooke Brady at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Police Department at 821-0141 with any questions.
