Big Spring Citizens Police Academy Class

The Big Spring Police Department is pleased to announce they will begin accepting applications for the CitizensPolice Academy Class to begin in May 2015!

“The CPA is 30 hour program intended to enhance understanding and cooperation between the citizens of Big Spring and Howard County and the personnel of the Big Spring Police Department,” said Brian Gordon, Administrative Lieutenant of the BSPD.

The Academy is designed to give participants a “tip of the iceberg” overview of the tasks, responsibilities and procedures of the men and women serving in local law enforcement. It is an opportunity for citizens to hear from officers in various functions of police work such as: Dispatch, Records, Animal Control, Recruiting and Training, Patrol Operations, Criminal and Narcotics Investigations, Crime Scene Processing, Crime Stoppers and SWAT functions. Robust question and answer sessions are encouraged throughout the program. Few questions are considered off-limits, and participants receive the most honest, straightforward answers available, from the people most qualified to give them.
