What is the Citizens Police Academy?

The Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is a FREE course for all residents and those who work in Cedar Hill. Offered by the Police And Community Team (P.A.C.T.) of the Cedar Hill Police Department, CPA is an 8-week, 30-hour course which includes valuable information for those interested in the Citizens On Patrol (C.O.P.) program.
