Classes will be held at the La Vista Police Department

The La Vista Police Department will host its Citizen’s Police Academy, designed to foster better communication between residents and the police department through education.

The academy will create a group of well-informed residents who possess greater insight into police practices and services.

Certified police officers and civilian instructors will teach each class, the majority in a classroom-type setting. A variety of simulations and role-playing scenarios, as well as tours of the Sarpy County Law Enforcement and Communication centers, will offer a unique, hands-on learning experience.

Participation is open to anyone who lives or works in the metro area. The academy consists of 3 hour classes held once a week.

All classes are free.

 Class size limited to 12 participants
