The Lafayette Police Department will be offering the first Citizen’s Academy of 2017 this spring. The next academy will begin on Wednesday, March 8th at 6:00 pm.
The Lafayette Police Department's Citizen's Academy is an educational outreach program designed to provide citizens a greater understanding of the inner-workings of their police department and of the role that law enforcement plays within the criminal justice system.
The Citizen's Academy meets one evening per week (Wednesdays) for 10-weeks, from 6:00pm - 9:00 PM. These classroom sessions are held at the Lafayette Police Department's Training Center, located at 1301 South Street. In addition to the classroom sessions, attendees are encouraged to participate in "ride-alongs" with our patrol officers, allowing for a real-life perspective on contemporary policing.
Spots in this academy are extremely limited, so persons interested should sign up early. Follow this link or copy and paste into your browser in order to apply:
