The Montrose Police Department implemented the first Citizen’s Police Academy in January of 1997. This will be our 16th year of the academy, which has been a huge success. Interested persons may stop by the Montrose Police Department and fill out a short “Application for Participation” and return it the Montrose Police
Department by January 3, 2013.

The ten-week course will be held on Monday nights at the City Council Chambers. Topics that will be covered are: History of the Police Department, Traffic Contacts, Criminal Investigations, Community Oriented Policing, Traffic Laws, Pursuit driving, Support Staff/Records/Clerical, School Resource Officers, Hiring Process, Internal
Affairs, SWAT, Firearms at the Range, Officer Survival Patrol Procedures, Animal Services and Victim’s Advocate.

Past graduates of the Citizen’s Police Academy have highly recommended the ten-week course that is scheduled to start on January 7, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m. Come and have fun while your are learning about the Montrose Police Department. If you have any questions regarding the Citizen’s Police Academy, please call or stop by and see Commander Gene Lillard at 252-5257 for further information.
