Citizens' Academy


The Colorado Springs Police Department Citizens' Academy educates citizens about the duties, responsibilities, policies, and procedures of the Police Department, as well as the citizen's role in law enforcement in a series of ten classes. The goals are 1) to help citizens better understand the Police Department; and 2) help the Police Department better understand citizens and their concerns. 

Upon receipt of your application, we will contact you to obtain additional personal information (i.e., social security number, State driver’s license information, height, weight, eye color, hair color, and place of birth) in order to process a background investigation.

Please provide a valid email and phone number so that we can contact you.

(NOTE: If you do not receive an email within two business days, please check your junk and spam folders.)
