The City of Anaheim continues to grow. This creates new challenges that we, as a community, cannot ignore. We need to look at how we can maintain the quality of life in the City of Anaheim that we have come to enjoy.
The Anaheim Police Department embraces the Problem Oriented Policing approach to crime and public disorder. We continue to build on the foundation of Community Oriented Policing developed over the past several years. Solving specific problems at the neighborhood level requires a real working partnership with resident and business owners. The Citizen Police Academy gives community members information necessary for them to partner with the Police Department in making the Department a nation-wide leader in Problem Oriented Policing. By becoming a partner with the Anaheim Police Department, community members agree to support specific problem solving efforts.
The Citizen Police Academy also provides an excellent opportunity for police personnel to receive feedback directly form the community we serve. In addition to learning about police department operations, you will be able to give us your thoughts and ideas about how policing should adapt to this changing community.
You will find this adventure into policing interesting, fun, and worthwhile. Please consider submitting this application and become an active partner with the Anaheim Police Department. Thank you for your willingness to help make Anaheim the safest place to live and work in Orange County.
