Citizens' Academy


The Colorado Springs Police Department Citizens' Academy educates citizens about the duties and responsibilities, as well as the policies and procedures, of the department, and the citizen's role in the interaction of citizens and police through a series of ten classes. In addition to helping the citizens better understand the police department, it in turn helps the police department better understand the citizens and their concerns. 

Upon receipt of your application we will be contacting you to obtain additional personal information such as social security number, driver’s license number with state, height, weight, eye color, hair color, and place of birth in order to process the background check.\

Please provide a valid email and phone number as these will be the primary means of communication. If you do not receive an email within two business days please check your junk and spam folders.
