Florida State University Police Department Citizen’s Police Academy
On this page you will learn some basic facts about what our Citizen’s Police Academy is, when the next class is due to launch, and how to get signed up.
Why a Citizen’s Police Academy?
The FSUPD Citizen’s Police Academy strives to open the doors of the police department to the FSU community and greatly enhance the understanding between FSUPD employees and the campus. The CPA allows members of the FSU neighborhood, who may otherwise only have a limited interaction with FSU police officers, to get an exclusive, inside view of what makes FSUPD and its officers tick. In the same vein, FSUPD employees are afforded an opportunity to develop professional and lasting relationships with their university colleagues. The idea of a Citizen’s Police Academy at FSU is a win-win proposition!
