The Citizens Police Academy is a six-week program designed to provide Claremont residents and people that work within the City with firsthand information about how their police department works and to increase understanding between citizens and the police through education. Participants will also take part in practical scenarios that simulate typical service calls. PD staff will discuss current issues, local concerns and leave plenty of room for questions and answers.
