Everett Community Police Academy

Due to COVID-19 health concerns, the Community Police Academy has been postponed until further notice.

The Everett Police Department is excited to host its first Community Police Academy in over 20 years.

Courses will occur over a 10-week period starting early April. The Community Police Academy is a unique learning experience conducted by Everett Police and is 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 will be 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.

Classes will be held weekly on Thursday nights from 6-9 p.m.

Due to the nature of the Academy, selection will be limited to 20 people with a preference to those who live and/or work in the City of Everett. All selected participants will need to successfully pass a WA State Patrol background check.
