Join the San Francisco Community Police Academy
The Community Police Academy is a 10-week program that meets once a week and is designed to inform and teach interested participants various aspects of municipal policing, including patrol and investigations procedures, vehicle operations, arrest and control techniques, firearm procedures and emergency communications. The Academy’s goals are to develop community awareness through education and to develop a closer understanding and working relationship between the San Francisco Police Department and its communities. Members of the community are encouraged to join and learn about the San Francisco Police Department. Participants can ask questions and offer comments within each class.
The next class is scheduled to start on Tuesday, April 19, 2011. We encourage high school students 15 and over to attend. The Community Police Academy participants are selected by the program coordinators after an application process. Enrollment is limited to twenty-five students per class.
