Would you like to learn more about the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police?

The Citizens Police Academy is a great opportunity to do so! In addition to hearing about the various departments within the Bureau from members of them, presenters cover topics such as Use of Force and the Pennsylvania Crimes Code. The class is a commitment – 15 sessions at 3 hours each, but well organized and very informative.

Twice a year, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for members of the community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau. The Pittsburgh Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) brings the police and the community close together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant.

The next class begins Wednesday, September 1st at the Police Training Academy on Washington Boulevard.
