The annual Academy is a tuition-free comprehensive classroom and hands-on educational program presented by Granbury Police and other Law Enforcement personnel to provide a transparent view of the police department and an effective relationship with Granbury and its neighbors, aged 21 and older.
The 30-hour Academy consists of 3-hour classes over 10 consecutive weeks with meals provided by Academy Alumni. Topics include criminal investigation, crime prevention, domestic violence, juvenile law, DWI procedures, an introduction to the Special Response Team, and many more.
Graduates of the Citizens Police Academy are offered the unique opportunity to join CPAA, the alumni organization of volunteers supporting (and supported by) the Granbury Police Department and promoting an effective relationship with them.
Fundraising and provision of equipment, events and benevolence not covered by the governmental budget.
Continuing education of law enforcement issues at our monthly membership meetings.
Supplementing police duties such as intersection control at parades.
The Citizen On Patrol is a Citizens Police Academy Alumnus with a desire to provide non-confrontational support to Granbury Police patrol officers and with the availability for more intensive training.
The COP program is designed to reduce crime in the community with the obvious presence of an additional vehicle and with additional “eyes and ears” on the streets.
