Citizens Police Academy - Registration is in Progress!


The Surfside Police Department’s Citizens Police Academy is an extension of our agency’s community oriented policing philosophy. The program offers citizens an opportunity to interact with members of the Surfside Police Department, Command Staff and a view into the police department’s inner workings through a series of demonstrations, lectures and discussions. Each session is facilitated by an expert in the field. The topics covered include Law, Patrol Operations, Homicide Investigation, Crime Scene Investigation, K-9, SWAT and Marine Patrol. Participants get to experience the police driving range, firearms range, firearms simulator and a visit to the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department. The Citizen’s Academy encourages residents and members of the department to work together as a team in maintaining a high quality of life within our community.

The Town of Surfside’s 17th Citizens Police Academy begins on September 6, 2018 and concludes on November 15, 2018 with a graduation ceremony.  Classes will take place on Thursday nights from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm  Registration is limited and the last day to submit an application for the Citizens Police Academy is August 30, 2018.
