The Community Police Academy is a ten-week program that is designed to inform interested participants various aspects of municipal policing, including emergency communications, first aid, patrol procedures and so much more. Classes meet once a week on Wednesdays. Students also get to participate in a ride-along with police officers at the end of the program.
The San Francisco Police Academy’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 Wednesday, January 11, 2017 from 6:30 pm until 9:00 pm. Classes will be held at San Francisco Police Headquarters, 1245 – 3rd Street. We encourage anyone 18 and over and living or working in San Francisco to attend. Applications being accepted until December 5, 2016.
The Community Police Academy participants are selected by the program coordinators after an application process. Enrollment is limited to twenty-five students per class.
