The San Ramon Police Department Citizens Academy application process
is open to those who live or work in the City of San Ramon

Have you ever wanted to know more about police work? The Citizens Police Academy is a 13-week program designed to provide those who live and work in San Ramon with firsthand information and experience about how the San Ramon Police Department operates. The Citizens Police Academy is taught by police officers and department personnel in their own area of expertise. Weekly three hour sessions cover a range of topics including patrol, criminal investigations, traffic stops, crime scenes, narcotics, DUI enforcement, officer use of force, officer safety, community policing, and defensive tactics. The Citizens Police Academy will take field trips to the County Jail and to the shooting range. Citizens will have the opportunity to shoot a variety of firearms used by police and SWAT. Citizens will have to pass a background check before being accepted into the Citizens Police Academy. Classes are held every Wednesday from 6:30 - 9:30 pm.

If you need more information or are interested in registering for a future Citizens Academy, please contact Cpl. Tami Williams at (925) 973-2786; email twilliams@sanramon.ca.gov.
