The LaVergne Police Department believes good citizen-police interactions and cooperation are necessary for an exceptional quality of life in the community. The way to achieve this goal is through an exchange of ideas and education.
The Citizen Police Academy (CPA) at the La Vergne Police Department is an excellent way to achieve this end. Across the country, this idea has been met with enthusiasm. Once a week for 12 weeks, the Citizen Police Academy meets from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the station’s training room behind City Hall.
The CPA will include detailed information on such topics as uniformed patrol, special operations, criminal investigations, youth and criminal law, and many other interesting areas. Based on recommendations from citizens and previous CPA classes, ride-alongs with uniformed patrol officers will be a part of the activities.
A combination of lecture and interactive formats will be used, so that this school will be informative, interesting and fun. Attendance is important for your success in the class. Each class is limited to 20 participants.
