BPD badge

The Branson Police Department is now accepting applications for its 2018 Citizen Police Academy, where community members are given an opportunity to learn about police procedures and investigation techniques.


The Citizen Police Academy offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Branson Police Department and will give participants hands-on experiences and insights into the department’s patrol procedures, narcotics investigations, crime scene processing, traffic enforcement, accident investigation and SWAT. Participants will also get to meet our K-9 team and take a tour of the department. At the conclusion of the program, graduates will have the opportunity to ride with a police officer and to experience policing from an Officer’s perspective. Participation in the Ride-along program is not required but is available to those who are interested


The Citizen Police Academy is a 10-week program that will begin on September 13, 2018, and will be held on each subsequent Thursday evening from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm through November 15, 2018. Interested candidates must be at least 18 years old and have no felony convictions. Priority will be given to people who live or work in the City of Branson. Space is limited to 20 people and will fill up quickly.


Information about the course and the application can be found on our website at https://www.bransonmo.gov/216/Police and by clicking on “Citizen Police Academy.”


For questions regarding the Citizen’s Academy, please contact Officer Donathan at ddonathan@bransonmo.gov or 417-337-8503.
