Citizen's Police Academy
Goals
Citizen Academy
The goals of the Citizen's Police Academy are to foster a better understanding between the police and citizens, by providing a medium for citizens to gain insight into why police do the things they do when working the streets. Citizens will gain a better understanding of the situations police officers face on a day-to-day basis and get a chance to walk in the officers' shoes with this interactive "hands on" approach to learning.

The Lone Tree Citizen's Police Academy brings police officers and citizens together in three hour sessions, for ten weeks; the purpose of which is to help citizens gain a greater understanding of what it is like to work as a police officer and the training that officers receive.

The Lone Tree Citizen's Police Academy educates and encourages citizens to become active in keeping Lone Tree safe, by volunteering through Neighborhood Watch, Business Watch, or Volunteers in Police Services.
