Balch Springs Citizen's Police Academy

Police Academy BADGEThe Balch Springs Police Department is putting together another Citizen Police Academy and asking for applicants. The class is free to residents or citizen's employed in the city (Click Here for Application).

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. This two-way communication has proven to be an effective, successful way to accomplish the goals and objectives of the Citizen Police Academy.
