Community Oriented Policing plays an important and vital role in reducing crime in any community. Quakertown Borough Police has instituted the Citizens Police Academy to improve communications and obtain citizen support throughout the borough.

“It is our hope that the graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to crime issues that are affecting our community,” Officer Lee said. “Graduates can take their knowledge back to their neighborhoods where they can use it to enhance the quality of life.”

The academy program is designed to provide participants with a working knowledge of the Quakertown Borough Police Department. The academy consists of a series of classroom instruction and practical field exercises. There will be eight sessions, held one evening per week for a period of two to three hours.

The academy gives an in-depth view of several areas of law enforcement. It is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn more about the issues that affect law enforcement in Quakertown Borough.
