Citizen's Police Academy

What is the Citizen's Police Academy?

The Citizen's Police Academy is a program that allows the average citizen to experience what an officer does on a daily basis. The program should allow for the community to understand what it means to be an officer and to help re-enforce laws that are sometimes forgotten about.

There is no posting on when the next class will be held. Please watch this site for updates on when the next class will be held.

Mission Statement

In partnership with the citizen, we strive to provide service based on excellence to ensure a sage and secure environment.

Code of Ethics

As law enforcement Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the constitutional rights of all men and women to the liberty, equality, and justice.

I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn, or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought and deed in both personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confident to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.

I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities, or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminals, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the police service. I will constantly strive to achieve the objectives and ideals dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession...Law Enforcement.
