Citizens Police Academy

About the Program

The Huntsville Police Department hosts Citizens Police Academy, a 13-week program, where participants will hear from HPD Officers and employees discussing their roles and responsibilities within the Department. There will also be guest speakers from other criminal justice agencies within Huntsville and Walker County, including Juvenile and Adult Probation and the District Attorney's Office.

Participants will tour the County Jail and the Communications Center, ride with a police officer and explore the Firing Range. HPD strives to make this class hands-on and enjoyable while educating the participants about the police department and the local criminal justice system.
