Citizens Police Academy

The Citizen’s Police Academy was designed to create better understanding and communication between citizens and the police through education. The Foundation sponsors this 11 week training course each year which is taught by the Charlottesville Police Department in order to educate citizens on its role in the community, build relationships with community members, and create a cadre of citizens who are better informed about the reality of police work.

What We Do

I want to thank you and the other individuals who organized [the Appreciation Dinner]. Often, the men and women who serve this community fail to receive the recognition and praise they so well deserve. They are local heroes and should be reminded that their service to this community is appreciated by the individuals they protect and serve.
