18th Citizen's Police Academy

The Mansfield Police Department is hosting the 16th Citizen Police Academy to begin on Thursday, March 15th, 2012. The classes are every Thursday from 6:00PM to 9:00PM for 12 weeks. The program is designed for citizens who live or work in our community. It allows citizens to become more familiar with the operations of the Mansfield Police Department. The classes are instructed by police officers. Citizens will receive training in various areas of law enforcement and will get "hands-on" training in several areas such as conducting traffic stops, building searches, handling family violence calls. ". This allows citizens to have a deeper understanding of the problems that officers face on a daily basis.

Graduates of the program may join the CPA Alumni Association. This is one of the finest volunteer groups in the state. They provide support services to the police department. They are involved in almost every community service program that the police department offers. They often assist the police department in at large city events such as assisting in locating of missing children, provide staff for large scale searches, emergency situations, alarm updates, and more. Their involvement with the police department is invaluable. They are a great asset to the City of Mansfield. Once they graduate they are eligible to ride out with a patrol officer.

Some of the classes being offered are: Traffic stops, DWI/DUI investigation, Family Violence, Texas Penal Code, Crime Scene Investigation,.
