Are you interested in learning more about the operations of the Richmond Police Department?

The Department is now accepting applications for the 27th Citizens Police Academy as a way to improve relationships with RPD, develop stronger advocates, and promote safety in the community.

The Citizens Police Academy begins October 9 and runs through November 8. The sessions will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Richmond Police Headquarters, 200 West Grace Street and various locations throughout the city.

Sessions will include, but are not limited to: RPD patrol functions, crime prevention through environmental design, personal safety, hands-on exercises, tours within the Richmond Police Department and much more.

Graduates of the Citizens Police Academy will become official “Volunteers in Police Services” (VIPS). Members of VIPS are notified of volunteer opportunities, events, special programs, and services with RPD.

Anyone who has interest in the Department is welcome to attend the academy. This is also a perfect opportunity for someone who is interested in law enforcement or wants to learn more about the law enforcement profession.

To apply, please complete the attached application and return it before the start of the Academy.
