Citizen's Police Academy

The Ballwin Police Department conducts a Citizen’s Police Academy, in order to provide those interested with an insight into the operations and philosophy of the department. The academy lasts ten weeks and will meet from 7:00 – 10:00 pm on Wednesday nights. Please watch the city website, social media, and local news sources for the next start date.

Participants in the Citizen’s Police Academy will receive instruction on patrol techniques, traffic enforcement, accident investigation, crime scene processing, police communications, and a variety of other related topics. The academy is designed to provide interested citizens with a better view on how their police department operates and the role of police work within the criminal justice system.
