Citizen Academy

The Brea Police Department holds an annual Citizen Academy from January through March. Dates for 2021 have not been announced yet. The Citizen Academy is a one evening per week, ten-week program designed to give participants an up close look at law enforcement. 

Included in the program curriculum are classes in criminal law, patrol tactics, firearms, drunk driving enforcement, crime scene investigation, K9, SWAT and other important aspects of a police officer’s duties. Classes are instructed by Brea police officers and civilian personnel who are experts in their particular discipline.

Citizen Academy also provides a great opportunity to get to know the women and men of the Brea Police Department, as well as the chance to meet other members of the Brea community. 

Please contact Detective Ryan Trent at (714) 990-7618 or e-mail for more information.
