What is the Citizen Academy?

Spring 2014 Citizens AcademyThe Littleton Police Citizen Academy is a series of classes designed to give community members a peek into the inner workings of the Littleton Police Department. A diverse selection of topics is covered in an effort to give attendees an idea of what, why, and how the police operate.

Each topic is taught by Littleton police officers or civilian staff members, each an expert in their field. Each instructor describes the functions of his/her position and is available to answer questions. Some of the classes also include practical exercises.

Participation in demonstrations and exercises is voluntary. Additionally, each participant has a chance to ride along with a patrol officer and spend time in the communications center.

What is the goal of the Citizen Academy?

The goal of the Citizen Academy is to promote a better relationship between the police department and the community it serves and to foster a clearer understanding of a police officer's duties, how the officer carries out those duties, and the end results of the officer's actions. The Citizen Academy is not being held to train citizens as police officers or to exercise police authority of any kind.
