Sachse Citizen’s Police Academy

CPA 2023


The Citizen Police Academy (CPA) is a 10-week program designed to give Sachse citizens a working knowledge of the Sachse Police Department. The objective of the CPA is for the police department to continue to build relationships with the community it serves. The program allows citizens to gain insight into the inner workings of their police department. It provides the Department an opportunity to understand individual concerns and perceptions so the department can be responsive to community needs.

Department staff engage members of the community in a classroom setting about the different aspects of their police department. The program curriculum allows citizens to gain knowledge in the philosophy and various areas of policing through instruction, discussions, and hands on activities.
