Enter the Academy
The Police Academy is a unique training experience designed to develop those persons seeking a profession in Law Enforcement. The Academy will provide recruits with an environment to learn and develop skills, abilities, and procedures related to police work. The recruit will be asked to perform learned skills under a controlled, simulated, and stressful environment to help replicate situations experienced by police officers. The Police Academy will challenge recruits to their mental, emotional, and physical limits to better prepare them for the demands of police work.
The Police Academy will require recruits to study provided information, complete and pass written examinations, and prepare uniforms and equipment for daily inspections. This can be a time-consuming process. Without a solid support system, a recruit may find it difficult to meet the standard requirements set by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training.
Law Enforcement officers are entrusted by the community to enforce the law legally, morally, and ethically. Recruits are expected to perform with the highest level of character, integrity, and professionalism. While at the Police Academy, the recruit shall adhere to the following:
- Arrive on the first day in excellent physical condition, ready for rigorous physical activity
- Ability to be “coachable” and work in a team environment
