After eight weeks consisting of nine sessions and a ride-a-long, 10 community members graduated from Menlo Park’s Community Police Academy on October 24, 2018. 

The curriculum consisted of lecture and practical, hands-on training in areas of communications, records, search and seizure, recruitment, community engagement, laws of arrest, crime scene investigations, traffic enforcement, narcotics enforcement, firearms, defensive tactics, a crime lab tour and a host of other law enforcement functions and responsibilities. The participants are commended for their commitment and active involvement in learning about the various aspects of the police department.

The next community police academy will be a youth academy held in 2019. The adult community police academy is held every other year and the next is planned for 2020.
