Have you ever been curious about policing and have the desire to learn more? The OKCPD Citizens Police Academy gives citizens a unique insight into their Police Department. Academy attendees get instruction on a variety of law enforcement subjects. The classes are taught by men and women of the Oklahoma City Police Department who perform these tasks on a daily basis. Classes meet once a week (usually Tuesday evening) from 6 until 9 pm, at the Police Training Center, for 12 consecutive weeks.
