Join the San Francisco Community Police Academy

 The Community Police Academy is a ten-week program that is designed to inform interested participants about various aspects of municipal policing, including emergency communications, first aid, patrol procedures and so much more.  Classes meet once a week on Thursdays.   Students also get to participate in a ride-along with police officers at the end of the program.

The San Francisco Police Department’s goals are to develop community awareness through education and to develop a closer understanding and relationship between the San Francisco Police Department and its communities. Members of the community are encouraged to join and learn about the San Francisco Police Department. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and offer comments within each class. The next class is scheduled to start on Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 6:30 pm until 9:00 pm.  Classes will be held at San Francisco Police Headquarters, 1245 – 3rd St. with some being off-site.   We encourage anyone 18 and over and living or working in San Francisco to attend. Applications are being accepted on an on-going basis.

The Community Police Academy participants are selected by the program coordinators after an application process. Enrollment is limited to twenty-five students per class.
