The Citizens Police Academy program was created to give citizens from the community a close up view into how the Tredyffrin Police Department functions and the vast array of services it provides. The program is designed to increase understanding between citizens and police officers through training and open communications. This program is offered to the community through the Community Policing Unit. The mission of this Unit is to provide information to the public so it can be informed of current crime trends and have a basic understanding of how to reduce its risk of becoming a victim to a crime. Fostering community involvement in Tredyffrin Township is one of the most powerful forces any law enforcement agency has in the fight against crime.
Academy course highlights include: Criminal investigation, patrol procedures, domestic violence awareness, DUI and drug investigations, traffic law enforcement procedures, overview of the criminal justice system,a tour of the Chester County Public Safety Training Campus and a local fire company demonstration.
