The 21st session of the Citizen's Police Academy program will take place on Wednesday evenings beginning March 15, 2017 through May 17, 2016 at the Horsham Township Community Center. We are accepting applications (link below) now for this FREE 10-week course. Applicants should be 18 years of age or older.
Presented jointly by the Horsham Township Police Department and the Hatboro Borough Police Department, the Citizen's Police Academy has been a great success since its inception in 2000.
Citizen's Academy shows those who attend just what the police 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 Upper Moreland K-9 officers and the Moreland Area Emergency Response Team. Our local District Justice speaks about judicial issues and the "Don't Be An Ostrich" anti-drug program is held.
The Horsham Township Police Department and the Hatboro Borough Police Department, in a continuing effort to foster a better police-community partnership would like to invite residents of Horsham Township, the Borough of Hatboro and residents of surrounding communities, 18 years of age or older, to attend the Citizen's Police Academy. The Horsham and Hatboro Police Department Citizen's Police Academy is a free 10-week course that will takes place on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM. The classes start in February/March.

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.
