Have you ever wondered, "Why do officer's do that?" Would like to gain working knowledge of the duties of a police officer? Consider registering for a Citizen's Police Academy class!
Students will receive instruction on Thursday nights from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on the different aspects of policing. Course topics include the police hiring process, Penal Code and Transportation Code, Arrest Procedures and Crash Investigation. There is no cost to attend. Graduates will have the option of joining the Pearland Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association. The PCPAAA is a service organization dedicated to supporting the mission of the Pearland Police Department.
The CPA is open to all residents that live or work in the Pearland area. Applicants are subject to a basic background check to ensure the integrity of the program.
A minimum age requirement of 18-years is imposed, with the exception of a 17-year-old if attending with an immediate family member.
The CPA class is held twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. Classes fill quickly! Submit your application for the next class; you will be notified by email class dates and times.
