Citizens Police Academy

                      Now open for enrollment!

The Harrisburg Bureau of Police will once again be hosting a Citizen Police Academy for residents and non-residents of the City of Harrisburg.  This academy will run from September 19, 2018 through November 28, 2018 from 6PM to 9PM.  City residents will have priority in being selected.  The academy will be held once a week on Wednesday evenings at the Harrisburg Police station.  The academy will give citizens an inside look at the different aspects of urban policing.  You must be 18 years of age or older to apply.  This is a great program for anyone interested in learning more about what police do on a regular basis.
