“Building relationships with our citizens is absolutely vital to being a successful and effective police agency. We recently had the honor and privilege to host the 18th Annual Citizen’s Police Academy. Through this program, citizens were able to learn about the laws of arrest, search, and seizure, forensics,investigations, gangs, drug investigations, and patrol operations while officers were able to get to know and interact with the participants on a personal level. These partnerships benefit us all. We were ecstatic to have over 160 youth attend the Police Athletic League annual Football and Cheerleading camps. These camps allowed officers and participants to learn and interact in a non-enforcement
environment. Such interactions are key to building trust and strengthening our community.” Thomas Hopkins – Chief of Police
