The Cedar Rapids Police Department is gearing up for the 2017 Citizens Police Academy training program that will begin on Wednesday, September 13th. This program is directed toward citizens who live, work or visit the Cedar Rapids community. The goal of the Academy is to increase understanding between citizens and their police department. The Police Department is not training citizens to be police officers, but rather helping participants gain an understanding of how the Police Department accomplishes its mission on a daily basis.
