Citizens Police Academy

The Powell Police Department hosts an annual Citizens Police Academy each spring. Participants will gain insight on crime prevention and will receive an inside look at the Powell Police Department.

Topics covered in the class include:

– Criminal and Traffic Laws
– Crime Prevention and Awareness
– Crime Scene Investigations
– Traffic Stops and OVI Enforcement
– K9 Demonstration
– and more!

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Citizens Police Academy was postponed. We’ve held the academy annually since 2010, and we were sad to postpone the 2020 session. With the uncertainty of future health guidelines, we felt it was best to postpone the program at this time. We hope to be back soon!
