RBPD Citizen Police Academy Class - Accepting Applications for January 2019

CPA Flyer

The Redondo Beach Citizen Police Academy began in the spring of 1994. The Academy’s purpose is to provide members of the community with a working knowledge of the Police Department along with the roles and responsibilities of its police officers. The goals of the program are accomplished through lecture, hands-on training, demonstrations and a “ride along” with a police officer.

The participants will meet for three hours, one night per week for fourteen weeks, in addition to a graduation night. The information covered includes police training, SWAT, traffic, criminal investigation, K-9, gangs and narcotics. There will be an emphasis on the patrol division, since it is this unit that has the majority of public contact.

The program is part of an on-going effort to improve police-community relations. It is strongly believed that the more information that the public has about the Redondo Beach Police Department, the less likely they will be suspicious, fearful or hold any misconceptions about police operations. Many conflicts are caused simply by a lack of understanding. The graduates of the program become not only better informed, but they can take back a solid foundation of information to the community. The result is a closer and more positive relationship between the Police Department and the community it serves.

The next class will start January 2019. If you or anyone you know might be interested in participating in this program, please contact Officer Michael Diehr at his email address mike.diehr@redondo.org or by phone at (310) 379-2477 x2493. Officer Diehr will send out an application to you. Remember applications are taken on first come; first serve basis and seats are limited.
