Citizen's Police Academy

The Huntersville Police Department's Citizen Police Academy is a 5-week program held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Huntersville Police Department located at 9630 Julian Clark Avenue, Huntersville, NC. In keeping with our organizational values “Honor, Professionalism and Dedication to Duty,” the Huntersville Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy is designed to nurture public trust through informing our citizens of the crucial role the police department serves in the community. The Academy is a community relations program and is not designed to train citizens to be police officers or to be our representatives; rather it gives the citizens a basic but realistic view of what the police really do. The Citizen Police Academy is intended to be an interactive program involving open discussion and some “hands on” activities.  The CPA is free for all participants.  

2020 Dates:  February 25 - March 26 from 6:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
