Houston, TX — The Harris County Sheriff’s Office Citizen’s Police Academy is a 13-week program designed to give residents a working knowledge of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, including police procedures and protocol.
Through the CPA’s interactive courses, participants learn many aspects of law enforcement, such as the Texas Penal Code, Patrol Procedures, Gang Awareness, Homicide Division and many other topics. Residents will gain a better understanding of how police services are conducted in their communities and see “how and why” deputies make some of their decisions in the course of their duties.
Graduates of the CPA class play a vital role in their community by improving communication between citizens and law enforcement and by providing local input and support throughout the county. The HCSO hopes the graduates will become partners with the agency in identifying problems and solutions to the crime issues affecting our community.
HCSO Citizen’s Police Academy Class #43 will be held at the Champion Forest Baptist Church, Cypress Campus, 15555 Stuebner Airline, Houston, Texas 77069, near the Champion Forest area.
Classes will be held March 2-May 25, 2017, which is every Thursday, from 7:00 pm -10:00 pm for 13-weeks.
Residents interested in attending the Citizen’s Police Academy may pick up an application at any HCSO storefront, online or by contacting the HCSO’s Community Services Division at 713-759-9454.
