The Citizen Police Academy was formed in League City in 2002. It gives residents an opportunity to see how and why the League City Police Department operates as it does. There is a spring and fall class every year and the course is 13 weeks long with meetings once a week.
Applicants must be employed in League City or be a resident, at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver's license, and pass a background check. The next class will begin on August 17. Applications (PDF) can be scanned and emailed, sent by USPS mail, or turned in at the police department.
Some of the classes include:
Use of Force
Firearms Safety and a Range Day
Attendees are also put through mock traffic stop scenarios which cover incidents officers might face on duty.
