The Citizen Police Academy is a series of eight classes sponsored by the Lowell Police Department. It is held to educate citizens about the Lowell Police Department, its organization, operations, and role in the community.
Participants are instructed by department supervisors as to the responsibilities of their various units. Citizens gain an understanding of the challenges facing law enforcement in today's world. Students are given the opportunity not only to learn but to offer ideas and solutions. The goal of the academy is to develop a unique partnership between citizens and their police department that benefits both.
