The Citizen Police Academy is designed to enhance police/community relationships. The academy includes sessions covering the Texas Penal Code, traffic laws, firearms, defensive tactics, felony/misdemeanor stops, criminal investigations, gangs/school violence, and many others.
When possible, the sessions are hands on and students take an active part in the class. The class is limited to 25 students so space is limited. The academy will provide a greater awareness and understanding of the police officer's role in the community.
There will be no cost to students who attend and the course materials will be provided. Interested parties are encouraged to pick up an application at the department.
For further information, contact Lieutenant Jessie Reese at the Henderson Police Department. The application is included below if interested in applying. You may submit it electronically, by mail or in person.
