Paris Police Department

Citizens Police Academy Class 2019-10

Accepting Applications

 

The Paris Police Department is proud to announce the scheduling of our 10th Citizens Police Academy.

 

Class 2019-10 will begin on January 8, 2019, Tuesday evening at 6:00 PM. The classes are held every Tuesday for seven weeks at the police department in the Emergency Operations Center.  Classes begin at 6 PM and are usually finished by 9:00 PM.  There is also one Saturday class where students are taken to the firing range for demonstrations.

 

The program provides insight to the public on the operations of the department. The classes are taught by our officers who have duties in the various divisions or teams of the department. Classes include Uniform Patrol operations, Criminal Investigation, DWI Enforcement, Communications, Crime Prevention, SWAT, Community Policing and many other aspects of the department operations.  Students are encouraged to take advantage of a ride-along with an officer on patrol but are not required to.

 

Chief Bob Hundley remarked that since the start of this program in 2009, a little over 250 citizens have taken advantage of the class.  “The first year we did two academies and since then we have one a year.  This program fosters better relations with the citizens we serve and allows them to see what real police work is and what it isn’t.  Upon graduation, students can join the CPA Alumni Association.  This association has a division of ‘Citizens On Patrol” who assists the department as volunteers for traffic control, attendance at special events and provides additional eyes only patrol activity. This association has provided support to the department since inception and we are very proud of our volunteers.”

 

A criminal history check will be conducted on all applicants, and those with recent criminal backgrounds may not be accepted into this program. All applicants must be at least 18 years of age and class attire will be casual. For more information contact Officer Curtis Garrett at 903-737-4111 or the Chief’s office at 903-737-4100.  Applications are available at the Paris Police Department, 2910 Clarksville Street, or on the City’s website (www.paristexas.gov).
