The Monterey Police Department invites you to join our next Community Academy to learn how your police department operates. During the eleven week course, you will be exposed to every aspect of how we keep Monterey safe. We will strive to answer all the questions you have about policing the “Monterey Way” and why we do the things we do. You will hear from the men and woman who are responsible for delivering quality professional police services and even have an opportunity to ride on patrol with them!! Everyone gets involved, from the Chief of Police to our newest recruit!!
This course is not meant to train people to be police officers. Rather, it is intended to open communication and reconnect us with you, the people we serve. Those that have already graduated have left with a renewed appreciation for what police work is about.
