What is a Citizens’ Police Academy?
The Citizens’ Police Academy is comprised of local citizens that gather every Wednesday evening in a classroom setting to learn about the various aspects of police work. Topics discussed are police operation related and include both lecture and hands-on training. Sessions meet once a week in the evening for twelve weeks. Participants will meet several members of the Port Huron Police department through presentations, a patrol ride along and role playing scenarios. Participants will also be introduced to the Volunteers in Policing program which is a grassroots effort through a collaborative partnership between citizens and police to curb crime in our neighborhoods.
 
What is the purpose of the Citizens Police Academy?
The purpose of the Port Huron Police Department’s Citizens’ Academy is to develop positive relations between the Police and the community through education. Citizens will be exposed to the problems and challenges facing law enforcement and experience decision making issues that face their officers on a daily basis.
 
Who instructs the Citizens’ Police Academy?
Instructors are combination of sworn Port Huron Police Officers and civilian staff. In addition, invited guest speakers from around the local law enforcement community will also present topics relevant to their agencies.

Participants must be 21 years of age or older to attend the academy and will be selected after a careful review of the applications received. Priority will be given to residents of the City of Port Huron but residents outside the city limits are encouraged to apply.
