The UC Davis Police Department is offering a free Citizens' Academy program during Spring Quarter 2011. This nine week (Wednesdays April 6th through June 1st; 3:00pm - 5:00pm) course will offer:

  • Community & Police Relationships
  • Arrest-Search-Seizure
  • Defensive Tactics
  • Lethal Weapons
  • High Speed Chase
  • High Risk Stops
  • Shoot-Don't Shoot
  • Community Oriented Policing

In order to take part in this, you need to get a Livescan and pass a California Department of Justice background check. UCPD picks up the tab for this, though.

The City of Davis Police Department also offers a Citizen's Academy, with slightly different subject matter.
