Are you interested in having a better understanding of the Fort Myers Police Department? Do you want to know how you as a community member can work in partnership with the Police Department? How does being armed with knowledge sound to you? If you answered yes to any of these questions then the Citizen Police Academy (CPA) is right for you.
Upon completing the CPA, participants will not be armed with a gun and a badge, rather they will be armed with a wealth of knowledge and understanding of what the Fort Myers Police Department does on a daily basis. Participants that attend a minimum of 24 hours of instruction will be honored with a graduation ceremony for their time and dedication to the CPA.
Dates of the next CPA: TBA
Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as space is limited. Applications from citizens that live and/or work within the city limits will be given priority over the other applications.
Please mail or drop off your completed application with an original signature to the Fort Myers Police Department, in care of Arleen Stoebenau. If you have any questions, you can contact Arleen at 239-321-7723.
