In Apopka, we have a great volunteer organization known as the Apopka Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (ACPAAA), which helps support the mission of the Apopka Police Department. ACPAAA volunteers work throughout the year for events hosted by The City and Apopka Police Department. Each year, our great police volunteers accumulate well over 1000 hours of volunteering. We cannot say enough about these fine men and women who support our agency and our City.
In order to become a member of the ACPAAA, volunteers must attend our 14-week Citizens Police Academy, hosted by the Apopka Police Department. The Citizens Police Academy is a program designed to acquaint community residents, who are not sworn Police Officers, with the activities of our agency and to foster public education and service at community-related events. Participants learn about criminal investigations, SWAT, K-9 and more, all taught by Apopka Police Department Officers and civilian employees.
There is no cost for the Citizens Police Academy, but there are certain requirements in order to attend. For more information, including when registration opens, please contact Officer Jason Wiggins by email or call at 407-703-1777.
