About

The Citizen’s Police Academy is designed to build a bond of mutual trust and respect between the police department and the community. Additionally the academy highlights the importance of citizen participation in public safety, so that the community may remain free from the fear of crime.

CPAC Alumni Association Citizens that successfully complete the Citizens Police Academy receive a Certificate of Completion and are eligible to join the Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association (CPAC). Members of CPAC donate their valuable time and efforts in support of community and civic activities. The Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) has been established to promote an understanding of the Coppell Police Department, its policies and procedures. Police Work is filled with many variables that require professional solutions. The goal is to reduce perceived suspicions and misconceptions by establishing mutual trust and cooperation between the police and the citizens of Coppell.

The Citizen’s Police Academy presents an opportunity to promote civic awareness. Citizens wanting to volunteer at the Coppell Police Department must take the Citizen’s Police Academy Class and join the Alumni Association before they are eligible to volunteer.
