Citizens Police Academy
The Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is operated by the Community Relations Unit to educate Allen residents about their police department. During the twelve week course, participants learn about topics ranging from criminal law and patrol tactics to effective surveillance techniques. The group may also take field trips to facilities such as the Collin County Detention Center, Collin County Medical Examiner's Office, and the police shooting range.

The course is free and is held twice a year. The Spring 2015 session begins March 5 and ends May 21. Classes meet weekly on Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Allen Police Training Facility (802 S. Greenville Ave.) All participants must be at least 18 years of age and live or work in Allen. Applications must be submitted by March 4.

After graduating from the Citizen Police Academy, alumni become eligible to train for two additional volunteer groups: Volunteers in Policing (VIPs) and Citizens on Patrol (COPs).

Apply for the Citizens Police Academy.
