Full Description

What is the Citizen Police Academy?

The Citizen Police Academy is a ten-week informative overview of the West Allis Police Department’s operations designed to provide the citizens of West Allis a first-hand look. Classes will be held on Wednesdays beginning March 11 through May 20 (no class April 8th) from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the West Allis Police Department, 11301 W Lincoln Ave. Each week’s topic will provide insight into the West Allis Police Department. Participants are also provided with the opportunity to ask experienced officers questions about police services. 

Participants will be instructed in current issues facing law enforcement and will also be exposed to techniques that officers use on a daily basis in managing resistance and aggression of citizens.
