The goal of the Citizens' Police Academy is to create and develop a growing nucleus of responsible, well-informed citizens who have the potential to influence public opinion concerning police practices and service delivery.

A wide range of topics are covered dealing with the various capabilities and functions of the Knoxville Police Department. Class sizes are kept to a minimum, in order to foster an environment for individual attention an active class participation.

Attendance of each session is critical to fully benefit from participation in the CPA. Please make every effort to attend each training session. If you will be unable to attend, or will need to arrive late, please notify the CPA Coordinator at the earliest opportunity.

In order to participate in the Citizens' Police Academy you must:
