Division of Police
Citizens Police Academy
The Citizens Police Academy is a 12-week course for Lakewood residents or people who work in Lakewood who are interested in learning more about the Division of Police. Classes are held once a week for 2 hours. There is no fee to attend.
During the sessions, students are presented with information from a number of speakers to familiarize them with a variety of policing issues in Lakewood. In addition to speakers from the Division of Police, the Department of Law and Judge Carroll also address the class. At the end of each session the graduates are permitted to schedule a ride-along with a patrol officer for one evening.
