Citizens Police Academy


Fall 2021 Citizens Police Academy registration has closed. Watch for Spring 2022 updates!

The Citizen's Police Academy is a special community education and involvement program developed to increase citizen awareness and understanding of the role of law enforcement. The academy is designed for citizens of all backgrounds and occupations. Upon completion of the comprehensive five-week course, academy graduates will be better informed citizens with a new outlook on law enforcement and their Cheyenne Police Department.

The curriculum will include training and applications of constitutional law, criminal investigations, human trafficking, as well as crime scene processing. Additionally, students will actively learn about defensive tactics, traffic enforcement, pursuits and firearms familiarization. Several practical exercises will be conducted so students can perform many elements of everyday law enforcement.

Applicants must be at least 18-years-old, agree to a background investigation, have a valid driver’s license, and complete a waiver of liability. Space is limited to 30 valid applicants.

Applicants must attend and participate in at least eight of the twelve training sessions to graduate. Classes are held Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. MST. There will also be two Saturday classes, tentatively scheduled from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
