Citizens Police Academy
Have you ever wondered how a San Angelo Police Officer is trained?
At the Citizens Police Academy, you will have the opportunity to see and hear firsthand the overwhelming curriculum recruits must master before they can wear the uniform of the San Angelo Police Department.
Your instructors will be real police officers and civilian specialists who will take you on an accelerated overview of the various operations of the San Angelo Police Department.
It’s our goal to increase understanding of police work and to develop effective police/community partnerships.
Join us and be part of this important effort. What you learn will not only benefit you, but, if shared with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, it could have a significant impact on police and community relations.
