The Citizens Police Academy is a 40-hour course designed to give community members a working knowledge of their police department. The course introduces citizens to the various divisions of the Pecos Police Department, including how officers are trained in criminal law, criminal procedures, criminal investigations, jail procedures, firearms and narcotic enforcement.
Students meet once a week and there is a $25.00 registration fee. Students can also have the opportunity to "ride-along" with an on-duty police officer. At the completion of the course, a graduation ceremony is held complete with dinner and awards.
