The next Citizens Police Academy will start January 9th, 2014 and will be held in building 900 at the Great Plains Technology Center.
The Lawton Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (CPAAA) is designed to promote a partnership of mutual support and respect between the citizens of Lawton and the Lawton Police Department through continuing education, communication and service.
WHO WE ARE
The Lawton Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association is comprised of CPA graduates who are committed to the mission of the CPA and its focus on being a valuable partner with the Lawton Police Department by creating better police-community relations through awareness and training.
The goal is to get the Lawton-Fort Sill community to take a more active role in working with the police to combat crime in the city's neighborhoods and understand the challenges that our officers face on a daily basis.
WHAT WE DO
We offer volunteer support services to the Lawton Police Department which allows police officers to have a one-on-one working relationship with the citizens of Lawton. CPA members volunteer their services at police community events and also hold fundraisers during the year for items the police department needs, but the City of Lawton does not currently provide.
