lapd lgbtThe nine-week academy is designed to give community members an overview of the Los Angeles Police Department’s policies and procedures. The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional law enforcement academy. However, the weekly sessions are not designed to certify the participants as a law enforcement officer.

Through the Community Police Academy, enrolled students will be encouraged to build a lasting partnership with the Department, with the ultimate goal of reducing crime and improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods.
