What is the citizen police academy?

The Garland Citizen Police Academy is a 13-week program that focuses attention on the internal values, philosophy, and operations of the Garland Police Department. Designed for citizens, the academy educates citizens about the "How’s and Why’s" of the department, and the citizen’s role in the interaction of citizens and police. Students are encouraged to share this realistic view of the department with other citizens to improve the efficiency of law enforcement in their neighborhoods through shared responsibilities and resources.
