Enroll in UPPD’s Citizens’ Police Academy

May 3, 2021

The inaugural class of the University Park Police Department’s Citizens’ Police Academy is forming now!
This community-based, educational program is designed to provide University Park residents, who are at least 21 years old, with a working knowledge of the department, its personnel, and its policies.

Dates and Details

Academy presentations will consist of 12 sessions held on Thursday nights from September 2 through November 18. All sessions will begin at 6:30 p.m. To enhance learning and discussion, class size will be capped, and all class members will be expected to attend regularly.      
  
Each Thursday you will receive classroom and “hands-on” instruction from officers or supervisors who work in the divisions being highlighted. Facility tours and the opportunity to “ride along” with a University Park police officer are also part of the program. 

Our primary objective in offering the Academy program is to strengthen and expand our partnerships with the community. Working together, we can make University Park an even safer place to live and work.

For more information and to receive an application, please email Assistant Chief John Ball at jball@uptexas.org.
