Citizen Police Academy

About the Program

The Lodi Police Department's Citizen Police Academy is a program that is designed to give the public a working knowledge and understanding of the values, goals, and operations of the City of Lodi Police Department. 

The objective of the Academy is to improve the lines of communication and help build a positive relationship between the Lodi Police Department and the community members we serve.

Citizens bring a wealth of knowledge about their community, particularly the problems unique to their neighborhoods. In this way, members of the Department learn firsthand of the concerns of its citizens by interacting with them in a positive, non-confrontational setting. It is our sincere hope that the well-informed graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and providing solutions to quality of life issues that face our community.
