The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for you to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau. The Pittsburgh Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) brings the police and the community close together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant.
- Participants receive three hours of training, one evening a week for 15 weeks.
- Participants are taught the basics of criminal law, search and seizure, patrol tactics, firearms, police accountability, and many other subjects.
- Participants learn about the processing of crimes, how police canines are used, and are exposed to a variety of the specialty police units.
The program allows participants to experience some of the highlights of police training while being exposed to the operations of the police bureau. All this takes place in a safe and entertaining training environment.
