Citizens Police Academy

Paris Police Citizen's Police Academy

The Citizen's Police Academy program was started to educate our citizens about the inner workings of the police department. It was also viewed as an opportunity for our citizens to provide feedback about what they saw a need for in the manner of police services in the community.

Topics covered in the class include Uniform Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Communications, 9-1-1 Service, Narcotics, SWAT, Training, Animal Shelter Operations and Constitutional Law.
