Register for the Surfside Police Department's Citizens Police Academy (Deadline: 08/30/2019)


The Surfside Police Department’s Citizens Police Academy is an extension of the department's community oriented policing philosophy. The program offers residents a preview into the department’s inner workings during a series of demonstrations, lectures, and discussions. Each session is facilitated by an expert in their field and members of the class are afforded the opportunity to listen to presentations and interact with representatives of the Command Staff, members of the Police Department, and guest instructors. The topics discussed will be Crime Scene Investigation, Homicide Investigation, K-9, Law, Marine Patrol and there will be visits to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, the Driving Range, Firearms Range and the Firearms Simulator.

The Citizens Police Academy has experienced enormous positive results in bridging the gap between cop and community. Surfside residents and members of the department are encouraged to work together as a team in maintaining a high quality of life within our community.

The Town of Surfside’s 18th Annual Citizens Police Academy begins on September 5, 2019 and concludes on November 21, 2019 with a graduation ceremony.  Classes will take place on Thursday nights from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.  The last day to submit an application for the Citizens Police Academy is August 30, 2019.
