Helping Regina people learn more about their police service is the goal of Citizens’ Police Academy. It’s an eleven-week program, run every spring and fall, that gives citizens an inside look at police work, through a series of lectures, demonstrations and a ride-along. One evening per week, various police personnel give presentations on the work performed by their units. Topics include Canine, Polygraph, Integrated Drug Unit, Major Crimes, Special Weapons and Tactics, Traffic Safety, Communications, and Firearms.
Applicants must be at least 19 years old and must submit to a criminal record check. There’s no cost to participants, who are drawn from the general public. The course ends with a Graduation Ceremony at City Hall. Graduates of the program may go on to join the Citizens’ Police Academy Alumni Association, which is a group of “ambassadors at large” for the Regina Police Service. Alumni members also assist the police service as volunteers for building tours, training scenarios and events like the Annual Open House, charity benefits and police-hosted conferences.
