The Citizen’s Police Academy (C.P.A.) provides a broad based look at the policies, procedures and operations of the Rochester Police Department. At its conclusion, you will be more familiar with law enforcement in our city neighborhoods and also with the training currently being provided to police recruits. You will have opportunities to offer comments and suggestions on police procedures and the recruit academy curriculum.

The Citizen’s Police Academy Instructors will include experienced trainers and operational personnel from several units of our organization. Upon your graduation, you will return to your community with greater knowledge and a unique perspective of the Rochester Police Department. This increased familiarity and interaction helps to improve police-community relations, recognizing the partnership between the citizens and their police force.

Classes are held at the Public Safety Training Facility, 1190 Scottsville Road.
