Bike & Traffic, Lost & Found, Finger Printing:
The 14-week academy is held each spring. The classes consist of 12-Thursday night classes from 6:00-8:30 p.m at Green Hall and 2-Saturday classes from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at TBD designations. The CSU Police Department sponsors this academy to CSU students, faculty, staff and Fort Collins citizens free of charge.
This program aims to help citizens better understand the issues and situations that police officers face each day. Participants will be instructed in criminal law, arrest powers, search and seizure laws, department policies and procedures, use of force, traffic law, accident investigations, narcotics investigations, the judicial process, as well as interactive use with firearms and firearms safety, mock traffic stops, in addition to many other areas of law enforcement.
Participants will also have an opportunity to do a ride-along with a patrol officer while attending the academy, giving them the opportunity to see and learn about an officer’s role and duties in our community, as well as the hazards and issues that they face in our rapidly changing society.
If you, or someone you know would like to participate in this program, contact Sgt. Chris Robertson at 970-491-2481 or Christopher.Robertson@colostate.edu
Space is limited to only 25 participants and it is expected to fill up quickly. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate and cannot have had a previous felony conviction.
