CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY
The Muskogee Police Department has established an academy for citizens to attend and receive training in the operation of the police department. This is a 13 week course meeting 1 evening a week, designed for the students to receive classroom instruction as well as hands on training in the working mechanisms of the police department. Students are furnished with lesson plans and handouts from instructors during the training. After graduation students have the opportunity to join the Muskogee Citizens Police Academy Alumni(M.C.P.A.A.). Applicants for the class must be at least 18 years of age and pass a background investigation. The academies are planned for twice yearly, openings are limited and acceptance of applicants is not guaranteed.
The Muskogee Citizens Police Academy Alumni was formed by graduates of the Citizen's Police Academy. Members of the academy have the ability to volunteer their time assisting in the daily functions of the police department. This may include answering non-emergency telephone calls, assisting at the front desk, filing or assisting with child safety programs such as fingerprinting and child safety seat installation. The members of the M.C.P.A.A. work closely with the Police Community Relations Officer and have proven to be a valuable asset to the department.
Mr. Peters with the M.C.P.A.A. mails one of several boxes of stuffed animals to the kids overseas.
