Citizens Police Academy Information

Presented jointly by the Horsham Township Police Department, Hatboro Borough Police Department, and Upper Moreland Township Police Department the Citizen’s Police Academy has been a great success since its inception in 2000.The Citizen’s Police Academy shows those who attend just what the police do in the course of their day. Classes include Accident Investigation, Crimes Code, Use of Force and participants take part in a “crime scene” investigation. Demonstrations are presented by K-9 officers and the Moreland Area Emergency Response Team. Our local District Justice speaks about judicial issues and the “Don’t Be An Ostrich” anti-drug program is held.
