Citizens Police Academy

Learn About Your City of McKinney Police Department

The Fall 2021 class is canceled. New class date will be announced January 2022.

Overview
We offer a Citizens Police Academy each spring and fall for residents to learn more about their police department, police work and things they can do for their own safety.


Participants of the academy are introduced to many things including:

  • Traffic-related laws
  • DWI stops
  • Crime scene investigations
  • SWAT
  • K9


Graduates of this academy are eligible for further training in two volunteer groups: Citizens on Patrol (COP) and McKinney Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (MCPAAA).
