The Monroe Police Department will be holding the first Citizen's Police Academy.  This is a 12 week program which will be held on Wednesday Evenings from 6:00pm-9:00pm starting March 15, 2017 and ending on May 31, 2017.

 

PURPOSE:

Community Oriented Policing plays an important and vital role in reducing crime. Therefore, the Monroe Police Department instituted the Citizen Police Academy (CPA) to improve communication and to obtain citizen input and support throughout the Village of Monroe. Attendees of the CPA will be given an opportunity to learn first-hand about the inner workings of the Monroe Police Department and will obtain a better understanding of our mission, practices and operations.

 

GOALS: 

One of the goals of the Citizen Police Academy, of course, is to help the residents of Monroe to better understand how policing is conducted their community. It is hoped that all graduates of the Citizen Academy will get to know more about the men and women who are protecting their community and learn how and why they make the decisions they do while performing their duty.   It is our hope that the graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to the crime issues that are affecting our community. Graduates will gain knowledge that they can implement to enhance the quality of life in their respective neighborhoods.
