Citizens Police Academy

In 2007, the Wyoming Police Department organized the first Citizen’s Police Academy. This program is now offered annually. This ten-week program covers topics such as Search and Seizure Law, Arrest Procedures, Vehicle Stops, and other tasks a police officer must perform daily.

Police Chief's Message

In an effort to educate and inform the community, the Wyoming Police Department provides its residents and business owners a voluntary opportunity to learn more about the Wyoming Police Department through the Citizens Police Academy. The eleven-week program includes lectures, presentations, as well as hands-on activities to inform and demonstrate to participants the many facets of law enforcement and to introduce the members of the police department. This stimulating and informative program will give each participant a better sense of the Wyoming Police Department and the issues concerning everyday operations. Citizens will also gain a better understanding of their role in the police department's Community Oriented Policing philosophy.

The purpose of the Citizens Police Academy is to foster better communication between citizens and police through education and understanding. A well-informed citizen is more likely to share their experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizens' understanding of the role and function of their police department.

We encourage you to apply for the next Citizens Police Academy when it is offered. The academy typically meets weekly from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm in the Wyoming Safety Services Facility meeting room. There will be two nights the course will go from 6 pm to 10 pm. There is no cost to participants. Please Email Chief Brooke Brady or the Police Department at 513-821-0141 with any questions.
