Newark Citizen Police Academy

Are you interested in gaining a better understanding of how your police department operates? The Newark Citizen Police Academy (CPA) provides participants with an overview of the department's structure, services, and personnel through classroom discussion, hands-on instruction, and demonstrations. Police officers with extensive knowledge and expertise will discuss topics such as Gangs, Narcotics/Vice, Crime Scene Investigations, SWAT/Hostage Negotiations, K9, and Firearms Familiarization, just to name a few.

Eligible participants must:

1) Be at least 21 years of age
2) 2) Live or work in the City of Newark
3) 3) Have no prior felony or serious misdemeanor convictions
4) 4) Be willing to have a background check completed
5) 5) Be committed to attending all sessions

The next CPA is scheduled for Thursday evenings from 6:30-9:00pm beginning on September 6, 2012 and ending with a graduation/pot luck dinner on October 25, 2012. Most sessions are held at the police department, with the exception of firearms familiarization and the K9 demonstration, which will be held off-site.

Participation is limited to the first 20 applicants to pass the background process.

Applications can be downloaded on our website at or contact Beverly Ryans at (510) 578-4352 or for more information.
