EPD Community Police Academy

The Everett Police Department wrapped up its first Community Police Academy in over 20 years on 11/17/22 and it was a resounding success!

2022 Graduates

The Community Police Academy is a 10-week course and is a unique learning experience conducted by Everett Police, designed to give citizens a better understanding of the mission, values, and operations of the department. The Community Police Academy allows people who work or live in Everett to become more engaged with the department and gain a deeper understanding of what, why, and how Everett Police works toward enhancing the quality of life and reducing crime.

During this interactive course, participants are introduced to the basic information that all police officers must know to perform their jobs, including patrol tactics, criminal and narcotics investigations, use of force, Community Outreach, DUI procedures, domestic violence, SWAT operations, gang and youth services, and more!

Everett residents from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply, especially those who are not currently involved, but who have a desire to participate actively in our community. Participants must be 21 years-old or older and must commit to attending all 10 sessions to graduate.

This is a great opportunity for those interested in the fascinating field of criminal justice, current crime trends, personal safety, crime prevention and volunteering with the Everett Police Department.

The Everett Police Department anticipates hosting two courses in 2023, one in the spring and again in the fall.
