Citizens Police Academy

The Citizens Police Academy is a popular program that offers community members the opportunity to learn about their local police service and the legal system.

We offer the program twice a year (spring and fall), every Thursday evening for 12 weeks.  Police members and our community partners share their knowledge and experiences with participants in a comfortable classroom environment at police headquarters.

Classes are interactive and include popular topics such as crime trends, traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, fraud, forensics, emergency response and police training, coupled with engaging discussions by local judges, attorneys and professors.

Registration forms and course information are available at the front desk of any Waterloo Regional Police Service location or apply online:
