Citizen's Police Academy


The Class starting September 11, 2014 is now FULL.  We are not accepting any additional applications.  Thank you for your interest.
The dates for the next Citizens' Police Academy are September 11, 2014 through    
December 11, 2014.
The hours: 1830 - 2130
The location: The Office of Emergency Management (7840 Baltimore Annapolis Bl - #102, Glen Burnie, MD 21061)
1. The Citizens Police Academy provides Anne Arundel County residents, 21 years of age and older, an opportunity to learn about laws, police procedures, forensics, crime scene collections, resource management and more.  Participants are provided an opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned through some hands-on practical applications.  You’ll learn self-defense, arrest techniques, vehicle maneuvers, as well as learn about many other areas of the Police Department.  You’ll also learn about how to improve the quality of life in your community by partnering with the police department.
2. The goal of the Anne Arundel County Police Citizens Police Academy is to build bridges between the communities we serve and their police department.  We do this by offering an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the department and to develop a relationship with the community members through education and training. Chief Kevin Davis and members of the Anne Arundel County Police Department believe the best way to protect yourself is through knowledge.
3. Community members are invited to come to various Anne Arundel County Police Department facilities to learn first-hand what a police officer does and why they do those things.  The Citizens Police Academy allows community members to learn what resources are available to them through the Police Department.  It also allows the communities to bond with the department and form a “partnership.”  The Citizens’ Police Academy is 13 weeks (sessions) long.  The sessions are held once a week for 3 hours on Thursdays during the course.
4. For information and registration materials, please e-mail the Community Relations Division. Students have no cost for participating in this program, but they will graduate with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
