Citizens Police Academy

The Colerain Township Citizens Police Academy was established in the fall of 1998. The first group of citizens, or “friends” as we now call them, graduated on November 18, 1998. The first class was an 8-week program which has grown to its current 11- week schedule.Citizens Police Academy Classroom
