Registration for the fall session of Citizens Police Academy has closed. Watch this page for Spring 2024 updates.
The Citizens Police Academy is an interactive program that takes citizens behind the scenes of the Cheyenne Police Department. It is designed to help increase awareness and understanding of how policing is conducted while strengthening the relationship between community members and police officers.
The five-week academy will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will also be two Saturday field classes conducted for firearms and K9 training. Applicants must attend and participate in at least eight of the twelve training sessions to graduate.
The curriculum will include courses in constitutional law, criminal investigations, human trafficking, and property crime. Additionally, students will actively learn about de-escalation and use of force, traffic enforcement, telecommunications (9-1-1), and vehicle pursuits. Several practical exercises will be conducted so that participants gain a working knowledge of the duties and responsibilities required to be a law enforcement officer in Cheyenne.
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.
