Citizen Police Academy

The Fox Point Police Department offers a joint academy with the villages of Bayside and River Hills to the residents and business owners in the community. The main goal of the citizen police academy is to help the residents of the 3 villages better understand how the police work in their community.

Hopes for the Future
It is hoped that all graduates of the academy will get to know more about the men and women that protect their community and why they make the decisions that they do. The academy consists of 27 hours of training, offered in a 7 week course, 3 hours per session. The training will be offered to all village residents and persons employed in the 3 communities.

Training Topics
Participants will be instructed in basic police procedures, ride along with officers, and participate in much of the same training officers receive, such as: 
  • Defense and Arrest Tactics
  • Evidence Collection
  • Firearms Training
  • Patrol Functions
This program will also provide citizens with the opportunity to ask questions about police services and to express any concerns they may have. Anyone interested in the program should contact Officer John Adamaitis at 414-351-8911.
