The Citizens Police Academy offers insight into all GPD divisions and special teams including Officer Recruitment and Training, Criminal Investigation, S.W.A.T., Crime Scene Investigation, the K-9 Unit, Firearms Training, Vice and Narcotics . More importantly, it offers a unique opportunity to connect with your police department.
Presentations open a window into Galveston Police Department operations--what they do and why they do it. This is also a chance to become more involved in your community, network with others across the island, and ultimately come together in partnership with your police department officers to improve the security and well-being of neighborhoods and commercial areas alike.
We are pleased to announce the Galveston Police Department’s 55th Citizens Police Academy will begin on Thursday, June 7th. Classes will be held at Garten Verein, 2704 Ave O in Galveston, each Thursday evening through August 23rd from 6:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. There is no charge for the class or materials.
