Citizens Police Academy

The Coral Springs Police Department Citizens Police Academy provides residents and City business owners with an overview of what actual police cadets learn during several months of intense training.

For participants, the Citizens Police Academy is a thorough look at how each topic - from the police budget to traffic enforcement to criminal investigation - relates to and affects our own community. It is not a by-the-book method of conventional law enforcement education.

The Citizens Police Academy is open to any resident or business owner over the age of 18. In addition, consent for a background check is required prior to admission into the program.

The Academy meets one night a week for 14 weeks at the Public Safety Building.

After completion of the Citizens’ Police Academy, graduates can continue their police education by joining the Alumni group. In addition to meeting every other month to enjoy learning about expanded criminal justice topics, alumni members are often asked to assist the Police Department in City of Coral Springs special events, such as the Holiday parade, Our Town, and other such events. Lecture topics have include expanded versions of Academy subjects, guest speakers from different federal law enforcement agencies, and jail tours. Graduates may also become involved in the Community Assisted Patrol.
