Program Description

What It Is

The Roselle Citizen Policy Academy, in the spirit of community oriented policing, is designed to help the residents of Roselle to understand how their police department works in their community.

The Roselle Citizen Police Academy is an 11-week program designed to give the participants a working knowledge of the police department. It consists of a series of classes held one night a week for a three-hour duration.

Classes are taught by our own police officers in their various areas of expertise. To ensure a valuable learning experience, class sizes will be limited. There is no cost to anyone who enrolls.

What It Is Not

The Roselle Citizen Police Academy is not designed to make applicants certified police officers.

The classes are of an informative nature and are not intended to provide graduates with police authority to act as police officers.
