The San Ramon Police Department Citizen's Academy application process
Have you ever wanted to know more about police work? The Citizen’s Police Academy is a 14-week program designed to provide San Ramon residents with firsthand information and experience about how the San Ramon Police Department operates. The Citizen’s Police Academy is taught by police officers and department personnel in their own area of expertise. Weekly three hour sessions cover a range of topics including patrol, criminal investigations, traffic stops, crime scenes, narcotics, DUI enforcement, officer use of force, officer safety, community policing, and defensive tactics. The Citizen’s Police Academy will take fieldtrips to the County Jail and to the shooting range. Citizens will have the opportunity to shoot a variety of firearms used by police and SWAT. The class will be held Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The next session of the Citizen’s Police Academy will run from January 14, 2015 to April 22, 2015. Applications are now being accepted.
Applicants will have to pass a background check before being accepted into the Citizen’s Police Academy. This free class is for ages 18 and up. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, November 21, 2014. The application process is open to those who live or work within the City of San Ramon.
