About the Citizens Police Academy

What is the “CPA”:
A program designed to provide participants with a working knowledge of the Radnor Township Police Department. This educational and informative program allows citizens the opportunity to learn more about the issues that affect law enforcement in Radnor Township and the country.

The CPA consists of a series of classroom instruction and practical field exercises held one evening per week for 2-3 hours per session. The program lasts for 9 sessions and is offered to residents & businesses of Radnor Township at no cost.

Goal of CPA:
The main goal of the CPA is to provide the residents of Radnor Township a higher level of knowledge and insight into the workings of their police department. Graduates of the CPA will gain a deeper understanding of the men and women who are protecting the Radnor Community on a daily basis and through this training and working together, will foster a positive image of the police and community interaction. Graduates will have future opportunities to work as volunteers with the Radnor Police Department.

When residents take a more personal role in their community and the protection of their neighborhoods, they will enjoy a safer and closer relationship with their neighbors and local government and the Police. Residents who complete the training will be provided with a certificate of accomplishment and have opportunities to assist the RPD with various projects.
