Port St. Lucie Police Department is now accepting applications for the upcoming 2020 ‘Citizens Police Academy

Dec 9, 2019 |

The Port St. Lucie Police Department is starting their annual Citizens’ Police Academy that will meet twice weekly from January 7, 2020 to February 27, 2020 at police headquarters located at 121 SW Port St. Lucie Boulevard, Building C.

Classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 – 9 pm and are taught by various members of the police department. The academy is for citizens who want to learn about how the department operates with the understanding that this academy does not lead to certification or employment as a police officer.

Citizens will be introduced to the various divisions within the department and will learn about the specialized work of both civilian and sworn staff. There will be a Saturday field trip to the 9-1-1 call center and St. Lucie County Emergency Operations Center.

The Port St. Lucie Police Department recognizes that informed citizens are the best resource to reduce crime and the citizens’ police academy is designed to give residents a new perspective on the need for strong relationships between law enforcement officials and the community.

There is no fee to attend the academy, but space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Applications are available by contacting Volunteer Coordinator, Thomas Andrew at 772 344-4052.
