Citizen’s Police Academy Starts Tue 9/8, Applications Due THIS FRIDAY 8/21

Twice a year, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for members of the community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau.  The Pittsburgh Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) brings the police and the community close together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant.
Participants receive three hours of training one evening each week for 15 weeks in many of the varied functions of law enforcement.  They experience some of the highlights of police training and are exposed to the operations of the police bureau.
The next session of the CPA will begin on Tuesday, September 8, 2015, at the Pittsburgh Brashear High School, 590 Crane Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15216.  The program will be held each Tuesday evening, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for 15 weeks. 
All applications must be received by August 21, 2015.
