Constable Mark Herman's office is pleased to announce their next Citizen's Police Academy class is scheduled to start on August 1, 2019 and will run thru September 26, 2019.
[2018 PCT 4 CPA graduating class]
The Precinct 4 Citizen's Police Academy (CPA) is a once-a-week, 9-week program designed to give Harris County residents a working knowledge of the Constable's Office, including police procedures and protocol.
Through the CPA's interactive courses, participants learn many aspects of law enforcement, such as the Texas Penal Code, Patrol Procedures, Gang Awareness, Terrorism and many other topics. Residents will gain a better understanding of how police services are conducted in their communities and see "how and why" deputies make some of their decisions in the course of their duties.
CPA students are introduced to patrol functions, tele-communications, all of the investigative divisions which include domestic violence, computer crimes, human trafficking, civil/warrants, and more. Students are also exposed to firearm simulator training and a variety of police tactics.
Graduates of the CPA play a vital role in their community by improving communication between citizens and law enforcement and by providing local input and support throughout the county.
The CPA is free and enrollment is open to qualified individuals. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and reside in Harris County. A thorough background check will be conducted on each applicant.
Residents interested in participating in the CPA must fill out and mail an application.
