The Citizens Police Academy

The Monroeville Police Department in partnership with the Penn Hills Police Department are now accepting applications for the 2018 Citizens Police Academy – Spring Session class. Class size is limited to twenty (20) students, with preference given to Monroeville and Penn Hills residents.

Students attending the Citizens Police Academy will receive instruction from representatives of the Monroeville and Penn Hills Police Departments, as well as guest speakers from the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office, Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office Crime Lab Unit, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Application packages will be available beginning Monday, February 19, 2018 at the Monroeville and Penn Hills Police Departments or they can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.

Please complete your application and other necessary paperwork/checks as soon as possible to confirm your spot in this class. Many local law enforcement agencies offer Citizens Police Academy classes at various times throughout the year; however we believe our program is very unique, offering students a chance to drive an actual police car on a “skid pad,” and to participate in live firearms training on a state-of-the-art shooting range maintained by the Monroeville Police Department and the FBI.

In order to attend the Citizens Police Academy you must be at least eighteen years of age, have a valid Pennsylvania driver’s license, and have no criminal history that would preclude you from owning or possessing a firearm.

The first class will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 7:00 PM at the Monroeville Police Department. For questions and/or additional information about the classes, contact Monroeville Police at 412.856-3324 or visit the Penn Hills Citizens Police Academy page.
