The Colorado State University Police Department, the Division of Student Affairs and the CSU Bookstore will kick-off the sixth annual Citizen's Police Academy beginning Thursday, Feb. 2.
The CSU Police Department encourages the CSU community to take part in this unique experience. This academy does not require any previous knowledge of law enforcement or any special physical abilities.
The academy will conduct 13 classes and conclude with graduation on Thursday, May 3. Classes will be held every Thursday from 6 - 8 p.m., excluding Spring Break. Classes will take place in the CSUPD Training Room at Green Hall and other locations as appropriate. There will be one four-hour Saturday class so students can participate in police related scenarios using the department’s simulator.
Fifteen students and twelve faculty or staff members will be admitted into the academy. Student applicants must be at least a sophomore at Colorado State University and have a 2.5 GPA. All applicants must be free of felony and misdemeanor convictions and must agree to a limited background investigation.
To apply, pick up an application at Green Hall or download the application from the Police Department. Applications will be accepted from Friday, Dec. 2 until Friday, Jan. 20. Contact Lt. Chris Wolf at (970) 491-2312 for more information.
