The Upland Police Department Citizen's Academy is designed to create a better understanding of how local law enforcement operates, thereby opening lines of communication with the citizens and the police. Attendees learn the inner workings of the police department, tour the local jail, and have the opportunity to ride along with a patrol officer. The classes are taught by officers and other police department personnel and cover subjects such as S.W.A.T., forensics, gangs, narcotics, and many more. The classes are held at the Upland Police Department and are conducted over a 12-week period. Participants must be over the age of 18, live or work in the city of Upland, and have no prior felony or misdemeanor convictions.
