Community Programs


Citizens Police Academy. The academy provides an inside look at local law enforcement. The eight-week academy is designed to give an overview of our department's policies and procedures. The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional police academy. Visit our Citizens Police Academy page.

Community Awareness Program is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of residents to reduce crime and victimization in their communities. For more information visit the program page.

All the pills are destroyed in an incinerator. View the protocol sheet.

Explorer Post 7100 is for career-oriented young adults aged 14 through 21. While the program is part of the Boy Scout of America, the Explorer program is distinctively different from scouting. Get more information..
