The Citizens Police Academy is a 7-week course designed to educate the community about police protocol and procedure. The classes are taught by police officers and provide citizens an inside view of the daily activities of the Branson Police Department. 

Classes will be held Thursday evenings from 6:30pm until 9:00pm at Branson City Hall beginning October 5 and concluding November 16, 2017.  

Course topics will include:

  • Use of Force
  • Firearms
  • Investigations
  • Property / Evidence Unit
  • Community Oriented Policing
  • Tactical Operations

The objective of this program is to develop a community understanding of the Mission, Values and Operations of the Police Department. To achieve this goal, the
Citizens Police Academy was created to exclusively allow the citizens and business leaders of Branson an opportunity to experience the day-to-day operations of their community’s Police Department.

The academy offers hands-on experiences and insights into the nature of police services in Branson and is designed around a seven-week curriculum meeting once a week in a night class setting.

The program includes classroom training, open discussions, multi-media presentations, demonstrations, and practical hands-on exercises.

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the goals, values and operational objectives of the Police Department that serves the community in which they live and work. At the completion of the program, students will be awarded certificates of attendance in a graduation ceremony held at the Branson City Hall.

It is the hope of the Branson Police Department that students graduating from the Citizens Police Academy will develop a clear understanding of police services, assist the department in community relations and advocate in support of police sponsored activities and programs in Branson.
