The Ripon Police Department will be conducting its third annual Community Police Academy! The program is a nine-week program designed to educate members of our community about law enforcement in our community through various methods of instruction including lectures, activities, discussions, and scenario training. In addition to learning about law enforcement and community service, students will have the opportunity to explore new career opportunities and develop relationships that will last well beyond the course.
The academy will run on Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:00 PM, with one Saturday class at our range facility. The classes will start on August 23 and run through October 11, with a Graduation Potluck on October 18.
Applications for the academy will be accepted through August 4, 2023, with a limit of 25 participants.
You must be able to pass a basic background check, and either reside in, or have a substantial connection to the City of Ripon to participate. A commitment to participate in at least six of the eight weeks is encouraged. If you have any questions, please contact Sgt. Paul Staley via email at gro.nopirfoyticnull@yelatsp
