Applications Open for 2019 Citizens Police Academy

SWAT action

The Branson Police Department is now accepting applications for the 2019 Citizen Police Academy, where community members are given a hands-on opportunity to learn about police procedures and investigation techniques.

The behind-the-scenes look will offer experiences and insights into the nature of the Branson Police Department. This 10-week program will begin on September 5, 2019, and will be held on each subsequent Thursday evening through November 7, 2019, from 6-9 p.m. each night.

Participants will learn about a wide range of topics including patrol procedures, narcotics investigations, crime scene processing, traffic enforcement, accident investigation and SWAT. Participants will also get to meet the Branson Police 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.

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 30 people and will fill up quickly.  Applications must be submitted to the police department by August 1, 2019.

Information about the course and the application can be found on our website at http://bransonmo.gov/628/Special-Programs#CPA. For any questions regarding the Citizen’s Police Academy, please contact Officer Donathan at ddonathan@bransonmo.gov or (417) 337-8503.
