The Rochester Police Department is planning on a RPD Citizen’s Police Academy starting September 12 and running through November 14. The classes will meet every Monday evening  from 6PM to 9PM. The classes are held at the Public Safety Training Center.

  The Citizen’s Police Academy provides a broad based look at the policies, procedures and operations of the Rochester Police Department. At its conclusion, you will be more familiar with law enforcement in our city neighborhoods and also with the training currently being provided to police recruits. You will have opportunities to offer comments and suggestions on police procedures and the recruit academy curriculum.

The Citizen’s Police Academy Instructors will include experienced trainers and operational personnel from several units of our organization. Upon your graduation, you will return to your community with greater knowledge and a unique perspective of the Rochester Police Department. This increased familiarity and interaction helps to improve police-community relations, recognizing the partnership between the citizens and their police force.

If you have any questions please contact Officer Ted Coriddi at 428-1222 or e-mail at tc0550@cityofrochester  (add .gov).
