This session will be held at the new Hallowell Elementary School located at 501 Moreland Road, Horsham, PA 19044.   We are currently accepting applications now for this FREE 10-week course.

Presented jointly by the Horsham Township Police Department and the Hatboro Police Department, the Citizen's Police Academy has been a great success since its inception in 2000.

The Citizen's Academy shows those who attend just what the police officers do in the course of their day.  Classes include Accident Investigation, Crimes Code, Use of Force and participants take part in a "crime scene" investigation.  Demonstrations are presented by K-9 officers and the Montgomery County SWAT East Region Team.  Our local District Justice speaks about judicial issues. 

There is no charge to participate! If you feel you would like to be part of this cooperative effort between the police and the community, please complete an application available at either the Horsham Township Police Station at 1025 Horsham Road, Horsham, PA 19044 or at the Hatboro Police Station at 120 E. Montgomery Avenue, Hatboro, PA 19040. Applications are also available for download by clicking here.

Through your participation in the "Citizens Police Academy" program you are promoting community involvement, which in itself is the most powerful force any law enforcement agency has in the fight against crime. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with the members of the Horsham and Hatboro Police Departments about issues that concern you. We hope to see you there!
