Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a police officer?  The Swatara Township Police Department will be hosting a Citizens Police Academy for residents and non-residents of Swatara Township in March of 2021.  The academy will give citizens an inside look at all of the different aspects of policing.  Topics of discussion will include Patrol and Traffic Enforcement, Police K-9, Forensics, the PA Court System, Community Services, Criminal Investigations, Drug Investigations, Police Administration, Dauphin County CRT (SWAT Team) and many more.

Academy classes will include presentations from our officers who are experts in their specific field.  This academy will also be interactive and individual participation is strongly encouraged.  The academy will also incorporate various field trips to criminal justice facilities within the county of Dauphin to include Dauphin County Prison, Dauphin County Judicial Center, Dauphin County Court House, Dauphin County Communications Center and Magisterial District Judge Michael Smith’s Office. 

WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2021 CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY.
