Citizens Police Academy

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.

Classes
The Citizen's Academy meets 1 evening per week for 10-weeks, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. These classroom sessions are held at the Lafayette Police Department's Training Center, located at 1301 South Street. In addition to the classroom sessions, participants are encouraged to participate in "ride-alongs" with our patrol officers, allowing for a real-life perspective on contemporary policing.

Registration for the next Citizen's Police Academy is not currently open.  Please check back early in 2016!
