The Livermore Police Department is now accepting applications for its 36th Citizens Police Academy (CPA). The 17-week academy will run from August 7th through December 11th. There are no physical requirements for most activities and no cost to participants.

The CPA provides participants with a unique inside look at the Livermore Police Department and the law enforcement community. Participants will be presented with a variety of topics, including patrol operations, communications, evidence collection, hiring and recruitment, traffic, animal control, laws of arrest, search and seizure, use of force, investigations, crime analysis, police procedures, ethical issues, and many others.

The sessions are designed so that participants get involved asking questions and doing hands-on activities. A tour of the police facility is included in the first session. There will also be opportunities for ride-a-longs with patrol officers and sit-a-longs with police dispatchers. The program also includes a range day that will be on a Saturday or Sunday, date yet to be determined.

Community members are invited to be a part of this cooperative effort between the police and the public. To apply, please complete your application online at the following link:
