Citizen Police Academy

What is it? What are the objectives? The Tazewell Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy is designed for citizens of the Town of Tazewell and surrounding areas who desire a better understanding of law enforcement activities in their community. To some citizens, it may frequently appear that police officers are not doing their job or are exceeding their boundaries of authority. In the past, citizens have simply seen a uniform, usually behind a windshield or at the side of a stopped vehicle, now they will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the person behind the badge in a friendly setting. The program provides students with a better understanding of the issues and responsibilities facing law enforcement officers and how they approach various situations and problems. The Officers cannot always be aware of current situations in all areas of the community without input from community members.

The objective of the Citizen Police Academy is not to train an individual to be a Police Officer, but rather to produce informed citizens.
