Citizens Police Academy

Class of 2013
Citizens Police Academy
Class of 2013


It Only Happens Once a Year!
The recruitment for 2014 has closed. The class is full.

The Tigard Police Department operates a nine week Citizen's Police Academy once a year. The purpose of the academy is to create better understanding and communication between citizens and police through education. The intent is not to produce citizens trained in law enforcement, but to help citizens better understand their city's police department. When the community knows and understands the limitations and abilities of law enforcement, the police can then better serve the community.

The academy subject matter covers a wide range of law enforcement topics such as investigations, patrol functions, traffic related issues, community policing, gangs, narcotics investigations, use of force and firearms. All sessions are conducted by members of the Tigard Police Department. A graduation concludes the academy. To date, nearly 450 community members have participated in this popular program since it began in 1995.

Academy graduates leave with increased knowledge and enthusiasm to share with their family, friends and neighbors. In addition, some Citizens Police Academy graduates pursue volunteer efforts with the department that closely match their interests. In the past, other graduates of the academy have expanded on their newly discovered interests in law enforcement or other elements of the community.

The next Citizens Police Academy recruitment will be held Spring 2015.

For more information please contact Jim Wolf at 503-718-2561 during normal business hours.
