Citizens Police Academy

Twice a year the police department offers a 15-week class held on Thursday evenings to residents about law enforcement. Learn about the various specialized units (K-9, Crime Scene, Patrol Operations, Detective Bureau, etc.) and what training is needed to become a police officer, ride along on a shift with an officer, and even go to the gun range. The course costs a one-time fee of $40, and a PPPD CPA t-shirt and other supplies come included.

Participants must be 18 or over.  You do not need to be a Pembroke Pines resident to apply.
