Citizen Police Academy
Mount Laurel Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy
The goal of the academy is to provide a learning environment for our residents so they can gain a better understanding of our agency. The police department would like to foster a transparent environment through hands-on learning and observation. Participants will learn from experienced officers and detectives as they familiarize themselves with patrol operations, community oriented policing, K-9 functions, motor vehicle laws and prosecution. They will also have the opportunity to experience a ride along and utilize a firearms simulator.
The citizen’s academy is designed to educate the participants on the structure, activities and daily functions of the police department. The Mount Laurel Police Department would like to create more informed citizens and open the lines of communication between civilians and officers. Want to learn more?
