The goal of the Citizens’ Academy is to provide citizens with information through education and to increase rapport between the police department and the citizens of Golden.
The Golden Police Department began conducting an Adult Citizens’ Police Academy in 1995. We felt that exposing citizens to knowledge about police work would help them to better understand and relate to police involvement in the community. We added a Youth Police Citizens’ Academy in 2002.
Our hope is that graduates of the Citizens’ Academy will share this knowledge with others in the community.
