Citizens Police Academy

The Rossford Police Department offers community members the ability to participate in a yearly citizen's police academy. The CPA is held in the fall and lasts for 9 weeks. Topics covered in the program include: a tour of our facilities; use of force; TASER; vehicle pursuits; domestic violence; mental health and substance abuse strategies; virtual reality de-escalation simulator; special response team demonstration; RPD policy management; and body-worn cameras. RPD detectives also provide an in-depth review of a closed Rossford murder case. 

Participation in the CPA allows our residents to become familiar with the day-to-day operations of our agency; to get a better understanding of the policies, procedures, guidelines, and laws that guide police decision-making; and become better informed of our role in the community.

Applications for the 2024 CPA will be available on this page in June.
