The Citizen Police Academy is designed to give citizens a better understanding of what police officers do every day. This Interactive program provides insight into the philosophy, internal values, and operations of the department. Through Education, its ultimate goal is to: improve the relationship and rapport between citizens and the Balch Springs Police. The program also gives citizens the opportunity to interact with officers, ask questions, and express any concerns they might have.
