Returning for the first time since COVID, registration is now open for the New Rochelle Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy. Classes run nine consecutive Wednesday nights from 6:30-9:00 PM beginning March 8, 2023.
The Citizen Police Academy is designed to strengthen the partnership between the New Rochelle Police Department and the community it serves. Participants will be introduced to the law enforcement and the criminal justice system through instructors representing every facet of the New Rochelle Police Department, from the police commissioner and division commanders to the detective and police officers who insure the safety of our community.
It is the goal of the Citizen Police Academy to provide the community with an accurate insight of their Police Department and encourage increased interaction between New Rochelle Police Officers and the citizens of New Rochelle.
